Wireless physical perimeter policy software???

Unanswered Question
Oct 5th, 2009


I hope someone can help me. I need a software that can do the following:

"In this way, access to your organization's WLAN is only granted to devices inside the physical perimeter of your organization's space. And, access is automatically denied to anyone (and all devices) outside a defined perimeter "

I have very little experience with the Cisco Location Appliance (MSE now)so maybe someone has set this functionality with it(I don't know if it is possible).

I found this one http://www.newburynetworks.com/products-cisco.htm

but I am looking for an alternative.



I have this problem too.

In my humble opinion, I see no room for this in an education-oriented network. The school account wants student and staff to experience the full potential of wireless network. This means deploying clients that will do wireless: laptops, printers, PDAs, barcode scanners, RFIDs, etc.

If I don't want non-staffs to use I'd look at AAA configurations.

What if you are in a multi-storey building and you occupy part of a floor or even just a floor?

I guess, it's horses for courses.

Whoops. Sorry Bruce. Horses-for-courses means that what is suitable for one person or situation might be unsuitable for another.

What I was trying to say is that it may not be suitable for me, but it could be suitable for someone.

There is no such option with MSE or other cisco products at this point.

If your network is secure enough, then the inside / outside does not matter anymore.

Lastly, this is possible by physically blocking by infrastructure the radio signals but will be expensive.

This is radio communication, don't forget, its the same rules for any electromagnetic wave.
