Clearpass Appliance Question

  • 1.  Clearpass Appliance Question

    Posted Jul 14, 2020 03:21 PM

    Good afternoon,


    We are a school with 5k APs with 2 Clearpass appliances that handle the radius service, guest registration, and mac based authentication for non-802.1X devices.


    We are planning to start using Clearpass to authenticate wired users on campus. Do you recommend using another (2) Pair of clearpass appliances for this or combine the appliances?


    I mean have 2 appliances for wireless and 2 appliances for wired.


    Thank you

    Hi Nils,


    I strongly suggest you use the existing CPPM nodes you have, they might need additional licenses to authN the additional endpoints but you want to make your life easy,  a single point of policy control for the entire network and the view on enabling a ubiquitous experience for the user's regardless of if they are wired or wireless connected.
