Onboarding - Key Advantages
• BYOD means that users will bring a variety of devices
and users will lose, buy, and constantly replace
devices
• Automatic detection and provisioning of these devices
is important
• Simplicity is key, but so is the customer’s ability to use
the onboarding data within a policy
• Not having onboarding with user and device
differentiation only partially supports BYOD

Profile - Key Advantages
• Allows customers to maintain device visibility thru
real-time data capture
• Eliminates the need for manual device registration for
large environments
• Enables the use of category-based policies
• Weak profiling can cause policy misinterpretation
(i.e., a policy set to allow iPad use by doctors could be
applied to an iPhone which will not work for certain
applications)

Guest Access – 3 Categories
1. Home grown (separate VLANs/SSID) or use of existing
RADIUS/AD with static accounts (guest1, guest2)
– Weak security, no auditing, no compliance with data protection
regulations
– Lack of operator interfaces for non technical staff
– Best effort given IT resources
2. Built in features by wireless manufacturers
– Limited in flexibility and configuration options
– Requires operations people to access the controller
– Doesn’t work across multiple vendors or locations
3. Hotspot style gateways
– Duplicate wireless controller network and security features
– Focused on billing and PMS, lack corporate feature set
– Pre-set style GUI that limits configuration options
