Interesting. Wonder if they have opened it up to more customers. I asked our account manager about it over the summer and he said they were not accepting any more customers.
It's here 🙂
However this is concerning:
Wonder if templates will be supported in the future?
Anyone using this on a network where they are already running 802.1x? I don't see any mention in the docs about how the two interact. Also concerned that it automatically sets a native vlan on the switch port. That will mess up one of my SSIDs.
Few things I don't like:
SecureConnect will automatically place these MR access-points in the same VLAN as the management VLAN of the switch they are connected to.
Not a fan of this and they should allow in the future the ability to specify management VLAN for wireless. I don't always use the same VLAN for switch and AP subnets.
Assuming authenticated, the "Allowed VLANs : All VLANs"
I specifically go out of my way to only allow VLANs with SSID's tied to them (and management for AP) on these ports. Hopefully they allow this to be configured in the future.
Interestingly enough, the option is available on the template config.
I don't have a big concern about the allowed vlans since the AP is being authenticated but I don't like the native vlan being set. We use RADIUS VLANs on one SSID and one that can be assigned is the same VLAN as the switch management network. It seems like that will break because of a tagged/untagged mismatch. Maybe don't have a native VLAN once everything is authenticated.
@bigben386Hopefully it will work, then.
I see other features as well not officially supported with templates, like NBAR.
I hope the plan is to have these new features supported with templates.
