How to recognise MAC address application?

Some MAC addresses and their ranges are reserved for specific use cases by their vendors. Such addresses typically indicate what higher-level protocol is encapsulated in a frame.

Our MAC Address API outputs a field called macAddressDetails.application. If it detects that a vendor or standard is using the MAC address, it outputs a list of applications. Otherwise, it outputs an empty array.
