We have Cisco Wireless controllers (WiSM2, 5508s and 8510s) and we are looking for an “onboarding solution”. We are getting ready to evaluate SecureW2 and were wondering if anyone in this group  with Cisco Wireless Controllers is using SecureW2.   

 

Thanks ,

We currently use Cloudpath's XpressConnect with are Cisco 8510 solution, with great success, a very friendly web page wizard for the end users to follow.

At Rutgers we have used SecureW2's MS Windows supplicant for years. In the past we used it in conjunction with Cloudpath XpressConnect, which many schools did. The major problem arose when Apple discontinued default support for Java, which XpressConnect was programmed in. We had also been struggling to afford the cost of the product, which I understand became somewhat more affordable after we discontinued our contract. We rolled our own solution for a year and then were thrilled to find out SecureW2 were working on their own solution. We have been using it now for about six months and have been very happy with its features and flexibility. I have also found the product far more affordable than Cloudpath without the loss of function or support. We are also Cisco WLC shop but as was previously mentioned there is not considerable difference here among wireless vendors. Thanks you.

Hi Sapna,

 

We have been using SecureW2 on boarding technology for years successfully with Cisco WLC 7.2.110.10. (We are now running WLC 7.6.100.0 and WLC 7.4.121.0 also without problems).   This type of solution is used widely in various types of WLCs, not limited to Cisco  WLCs and the configurations are not really specific to SecureW2 but across onboarding solutions. In our case we have an unauthenticated open SSID, our "UvAguests or HvAguests" SSID, and use the captive portal external web redirect functionality of the WLC to redirect the associated clients  to our internal web server

(https://wifiportal.uva.nl / https://wifiportal.hva.nl ) hosting the JoinNow package and Cisco NAC/ISE guests functionally (only internal) . Users who have an existing internet connection that try to access this URL are redirected to the package hosted in the cloud to configure their devices. We like having the flexibility of both the cloud and locally hosted options.

 

 

 

Kind regards,
