minimum network bandwidth for devices connected to Clearpass 5000

Hi all,

 

Our customer is doing sizing for their lan network with Clearpass 5000. Information provided is that they have a total of 2510 laptops / desktops and 666 printers. 

 

They have the following enquiries:

1. With the above devices, what is the comfortable bandwidth per device session with Clearpass.

2. What is the frequency for post check and how much bandwidth is consume?

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: minimum network bandwidth for devices connected to Clearpass 5000

is this only authentication via RADIUS? then the bandwidth is really small, and if you set the session timeout to once every few hours the post first auth remains quite limited also.

Hi Friend,

Is this bandwidth requirement for only authentication with CPPM ? or uplink bandwidth limitation.

if it is for only authentication, required very little bandwidth.

 

Please feel free for any further query on this.

Cheers,

Hi Venu,

 

They should be more concerned with latency than bandwidth. If the AD DC is not where CPPM is and the latency from CPPM to AD goes over 150ms, then RADIUS can timeout. This is not a ClearPass or Microsoft AD restriction, but a restriction on how 802.1x is implemented by Microsoft and Apple. If the auth process takes too long, the device drops that request and moves on to the next RADIUS request (it will usually try 3 requests).

Thanks,
