My advice for anybody who is implementing Extreme Wireless is not to use MAC address filtering. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

With the inception of the Extreme Cloud, we are now in the process of migrating all of our customers to that cloud-based deployment. Concerning Extreme Wireless, our customers are happy and I haven't had any specific requests for new features. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to take the required training. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

It also depends on the integration with your LAN network and Network Access Control. Both have campus and cloud-native solutions.  One single pane of glass for all your end devices is very advisable. So be sure to integrate your LAN with your WLAN and NAC, and if possible with your firewall gateway and endpoint security. Aruba Wireless has a very rich feature set and integration possibilities. Extreme has a very high level of automation and easy to deploy virtual services on their SPBM fabric.  So it all depends on your expectations and business case...

The software developers in the organization should connect to wireless access points for internet by their active directory credentials. Is that possible with Cisco WLAN?
