Cambium’s ePSK feature is an extension of WPA2 PSK where multiple passphrases can assign to a single SSID. The Wi-Fi clients can have unique passphrases to be used by each client using this feature. The same feature is now extended to RADIUS.
The RADIUS server can provide the matching PMK for a given client, and corresponding standard RADIUS attributes can be enforced as client session management.
Auto Cell size is an automatic, self-tuning mechanism that balances cell size between APs to guarantee coverage while limiting the RF energy that could extend beyond the organizational boundary. Auto Cell uses communication between APs to dynamically set radio power so that complete coverage is provided to all areas, yet at the minimum power level required. This helps to minimize potential interference with neighboring networks.
The Radius based EPSK is very interesting, though I have to say the amount of clients I have that still have onsite Radius is dwindling but there are deffo industrial use cases out there for this that I can use this for. Will there be a guide or example how to set this up on different radius software ?
FLCN-9323 I’m almost certain I’ve run into this issue before a couple of times now.Clients complain about missing SSIDs or missing configuration after a unclean power shut.Usually requires a POE reset on the switch side to get it back in action.
@djdrastic , the ePSK Radius integration requires custom development on the RADIUS server and we have some partner integrations working. This will require a solution-level integration engagement with a good business case unless you are planning to use an existing partner. We are working on a solutions guide that will list the partners.
I can see a business case for some of my customer sites where there are different internal IT depts that service different types of equipment ie One that installs the wireless but another that looks after the IOT stuff connecting into the network.
We aim to build a solution that could leverage the Cambium ePSK without the need of pre-provision MAC address, have the same ePSK support multiple devices, and support a large number of PSKs as well.
I understand the not RADIUS-based solution has a limit, especially in cnPilot, in terms of max ePSK (a few hundreds? do you know how many?). If not for the limit, this solution would be preferred (very easy, no RADIUS)
Our assumption, however, is that this RADIUS-based solution has the capability to let the RADIUS (properly customized…) automatically provision new devices, by leveraging a mechanism such as the one describe din this Ruckus article (Commscope Technical Content Portal).
But we really want to make it work on Cambium!
If we can’t figure out we’ll engage external partner.
