Customer is not ready to change from Cisco wireless but does want to provide BYOD security. I'd like to propose an Aerohive BYOD solution and then eventually move the entire wireless network to Aerohive.

Is this possible? How is it done?

What do you mean by BYOD security?

The client needs to be able to allow tiered access to resources via mobile phones, etc. Tiered meaning access by requirement i.e. public access to internet, contractors access to named resources, employees to resources that are required to perform their jobs, etc.

Donna, typically it's done in concert with a 3rd party MDM solution. HiveManager vectors off the clients to Airwatch or JAMF for device enrollment.

If you use ID Manager, then you can have a guest management solution (kinda BYOD-ish). This is not so much a NAC solution, but often covers the bases of what people want and is relatively turn key since it is cloud-based.

Does this help?

If they want to stick with Cisco, they can use something like Cisco ISE, Aruba ClearPass, or another NAC.

You can email me for more info. I've done a lot in this area and can point you to the right resources.
