Re: clearpass appliance

How many unique devices will be authenticating?  If it's 500 or less at capacity per day, then the 500 will be fine.

No...If all auths are being sent to a single 500 appliance, then I would recommend a 5K instead.

Re: clearpass appliance

Ok.

 

If I have the following scheme:

One appliance 5K
2 appliance 500
License Guest 2500
A growing need future up to 6000 users just adding licenses, which give me suggestion.

 

Thanks

Re: clearpass appliance

That's a lot of guest licensees but then again I'm not sure what type of business you are supporting.

Keep in mind that active directory authentications or external SQL database do not count as a guest license.

Re: clearpass appliance

A couple notes on this.

 

  1. If your expecting a total of 1000 users I would never use two 500. You are are the risk of going over and you now have no room for groth. 
  2. Just like sdr53 mentioned you may have 1000 devices but does that include all of your standard .1x, mac auth, and guests?
  3. f you do use 2 500 CPPMs then you want to make sure you have a proper data retention policy and network design. The publisher is where all the guest will reside and all of the accounting accounting data. If you have a lot of turn over on the guest users you will see quite a bit of accounting packets comming in.
Thank You,
Troy
