Best way for wireless guest authentication


Can anyone tell me what a good way to authenticate guest wireless in my workplace, we currently use mac auth and usernames in the controller, which is not Cisco.

What solutions are out there for this, ie something separate to the controller like a radius or authentication server, we may want the guests to register themselves by providing there mobile number etc

Any ideas?

Re: Best way for wireless guest authentication

When you want to provide guest authentication and then you want certain fields for the user to enter, guest access is best when there is a portal page. When you want guest to enter information like cell number etc, then you either need to find a 3rd party captive portal software, or external webauth server or if you have Cisco wlc, you use ISE.

Your final requirements will determine what solution can or can't work.
