One of our clients have 2 branch offices. They want to use a centralized guest solution with one clearpass in Headquarters to authenticate guests via sms(where the guest credentials are entered via Captive Portal). After that the guests in all location will have internet access from their location.
This design seems very easy but the tricky part is after that. The locations are connected each other via Ipsec and the wireless infrasturacture is Cisco. Not like Aruba, cisco requires different solutions to perform layer 2 connectivity between HQ and remote offices. It is called Mobility Anchor and not the most realistic solution to implement. But can I do it with one ClearPass in the HQ to provide the authentication of guests via ClearPass in all those different locations?
