Multiple Captive Portals - Controllers / Central / ClearPass

Hello, 

 

Would like to know the possibilities of having Multiple different captive portals configured:

1- In a Master controller to be reached from different locals and push only its own site CP?

2- If 1 is not possible then a second option would be to have each local configured with its own CP. is this possible? Can they be all configured from AirWave?

3- Configure in Central different captive portals for different instant clusters?

4- Same as 1 but using a ClearPass, configuring different CP for each site. 

 

Thanks!

Martin

1) Captive portal is done based on role, so if there are different roles per site, yes.

3) Yes

4) Yes, ClearPass can use location information from the RADIUS request to assign a different role with a different captive portal.

Thanks Cappalli, 

 

So for a virtual cellular provider, which has different independent sites that will be centrally managed but have their own organization, do you think question 1 could apply or it will be a configuration mess? Im thinking of different options and pricing, this could be the cheapest one after using instant clusters but instant splash pages are really basic. We have Rukus and Meraki also in the case and want to have a budget option to chose from .

That would likely be a mess. If this is a large distributed environment,
Central is probably your best bet.

The problem is that central has almost the same CP as instant, its really basic.

Re: Multiple Captive Portals - Controllers / Central / ClearPass

Going back to your answer, we said it would need to configure different roles to have a different captive portal for each site. 

In the case we configure the captive portal on each local controller, is this still valid or is it easier? 

Should I authenticate on the local controller to do this or is it possible to do it centrally?

 

Thanks
