Aruba & Cisco Wi-Fi user access report & AP management

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I want to implement Wi-Fi access for domain user's (using LDAP) and Guest user(maually create) using Aruba AP & Cisco AP (cisco AIR-AP1252AG, cisco AIR-AP1232AG)

 

User access Report should include - Access user name, mac address, access url/data, used bandwidth, date & time, location.

 

AP - Aruba & Cisco AP should manage centrally.

 

Kindly suggest me to required setup component.

i.e. Aruba controller , CPPM, Airwave etc..

 

Thanks in advance..

Nikhil.

You've really not given enough information.
Size of area, how many users, building design, wall construction. There are lots of variables here which we will be guessing at. My recommend is to engage a local VAR who can help with a site survey.

Why do you want to run a split network with both Aruba and Cisco? I'd not recommend 2 different systems in the same RF space. But if this is a must make sure you either have different SSID per system or the RF space does not overlap.

I will do sizing for AP.

I need solution for existing Cisco AP plus new Aruba AP.
I heard that using Airwave we can manage multi vendor AP.
Using Aruba, if possible i will use single SSID for Cisco & Aruba to get seemless access.

Awaiting for suitable solution..

With Airwaves you can manage both systems but it's not a management issue that you should be worried about.
If you have both systems in the same RF area Clients will roam between systems which will stop data flow causing poor user experiences and complaints. Either have separate SSIDs for each system or air gap them so you can't see both systems at the same spot. Each time a user roams from. System to system they will have to re-authenticate. This is all from experience showing customers this is a bad idea.

As far as recommendations: it depends on what your wanting to do.
Tell us more about what features you looking to implement, environment, users, VPN access?...etc...

I am looking for solution to use Cisco & Aruba AP with single centralize management & reporting.
Cisco AP = 10 Qty.          Aruba AP = 15 Qty
Report should include user name, mac address, access url/data, used bandwidth, date & time, location, session logging.
Using single or 2 SSID (Guest & Employee)
For Guest, only internet access. For Employee, internal network access(for internal use).
Airwave can manage AP then shall i need to use controller?


Will my requirement fullfill using controller & Airware or shall i use CPPM also?
