Cisco ISE features and license requirements

Hi,

We are designing a guest wireless solution for a customer who got offices across country

Requirements are

1. Bespoke service to each office. Captive portal should be customized to each office. I am planning to do using AP-names/location and implement a filter rule based on AP-name/location. There are about 25 locations. I may need to design 25 portals based on location.


2. Solution should support about 1500 guest Users.


3. Self & Paid advertisements should be supported.

4. Username & password via Email/mobile.


What type of licenses I need?. Do I need any policy license along with guest license for 1500 people? Do I need any advertisement license?


I have looked at the license prices. they are really expensive. I am not sure whether i am making any mistake or not.


Thanks,

Hi Karsten, you are correct.

Hi Karsten, you are correct. I should have answered more clearly.

ISE Express by itself comes with 150 licenses. One can add Base, Plus or Apex licenses "a la carte" to an ISE express installation - up to 5000 licenses total. However those are normal full-cost ISE licenses.

You would still have the limitation of the initial ISE Express server (single-site deployment only, and cannot participate in a larger ISE deployment nor can it be paired with another ISE appliance for high availability) unless you were to upgrade it to non-Express version using the R-ISE-GST-UPG-K9 SKU.

To the original poster, ISE Express (or even ISE evaluation license) would be a good entry point to do a proof or concept trial to see if the product meets the requirements.

Based on these requirements, the ISE Express could be a possible license for you which is much cheaper than the "normal" licenses:

Thanks Karsten,

Can ISE express return the radius attributes such as user-level to the WLC?. Is there any limitation in radius return attributes?

Internet content should be served based on guest's age. I am not sure whether it can do it.

ISE Express is limited to 150

ISE Express is limited to 150 endpoints.

ISE Base license would more likely be indicated. The base license is not restricted as to what RADIUS attributes are returned. For a comprehensive listing of supported RADIUS A-V pairs, please refer to the following document:
