Airgroup without Clearpass

I have an Aruba network running ArubaOS 6.3. My school is currently thinking about putting Apple TVs in our classrooms (wired) so that they can mirror off their laptops (wireless). I believe AirGroup will allow me to have a setup wherein you only see an Apple TV if you are connected to a nearby access point. My question is, can I do this without ClearPass, or without ClearPass is AirGroup severely limited?

In order to have location and advanced user context, you need ClearPass.

Re: Airgroup without Clearpass

Yes, you can absolutely do it without Clearpass. I've got an environment for a customer that has 15 AppleTV's and 5 different SSID's. We are able to airplay, airprint & mirror across those networks without issue. Clearpass does give you finer controls over who is and who is not authorized to perform airgroup functions, but its certainly not a requirement.

You are correct that AirGroup works fine without ClearPass, but if you need context outside of user role (AP, AP group / building, individual users, etc), then you will need ClearPass.
