We are excited to announce that we have launched our new Hive Community! HiveNation will remain as an archive, but all new posts, discussions, and articles will be created on Hive Community. You can visit our new community at thehivecommunity.aerohive.com
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.
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.
