Look at the basics first...

Look at the basics first... wireless systems work only with its own wireless system.  Having a mix of vendors wireless will not work well, especially if you are using 802.1x.  It doesn't matter if you want to use ISE, NPS, or FreeRadius.  You need to provide a wireless system that works, then you can look at what radius you want to use.
