Note: Max supported latency between ISE 1.x/2.0 nodes is set at 200ms. ISE 2.1 raises guidance to max 300ms roundtrip latency. However, there is no substitute for good design to optimize data replication and reduce impact due to latency.
The ISE Bandwidth Calculator has two worksheets:
Single-Site Calculator - Used to determine bandwidth required between a remote location with distributed ISE nodes and single head-end data center that contains the Primary Administration and Monitoring nodes.
Multi-Site Calculator – Used to show overall bandwidth required between all remote locations with ISE nodes to one or two head-end data centers that contain the Administration and Monitoring nodes. Aggregate bandwidth at head-end sites is also shown along with graphical depiction
Bandwidth Calculator Assumptions
ISE Auth Suppression enabled
Profiling Whitelist Filter enabled
One node group per location
For Single-Site calculation, primary PAN and MnT nodes are deployed in primary Data Center to which bandwidth is calculated; For Multi-Site calculation, primary PAN is deployed in primary DC.
Mobile endpoints authenticate/reauthenticate as frequently as 10/hr and refresh IP 1/hr
Non-Mobile endpoints authenticate/reauthenticate no more than once per Reauth Interval and refresh IP address no more than once per DHCP renewal (1/2 Lease Period)
Bandwidth required for NAD or Guest Activity logging is not included. These logging activities are highly variable and should be treated separately based on deployment requirements.
Bandwidth required for general RADIUS auth and accounting traffic is not included. RADIUS traffic is generally less significant but actual requirement is highly contingent on multiple factors including total active endpoints, reauth intervals, and the authentication protocols used.
Deployments where all ISE nodes are deployed in one location are not considered by this calculator. All nodes deployed in the same location are assumed to be connected by high-speed LAN links (Gigabit Ethernet or higher)
Max round-trip latency between any two ISE nodes is currently set at 200ms.
Mobile versus Non-Mobile Endpoint
For the purposes of this bandwidth calculator, Mobile and Non-Mobile Endpoints have the following characteristics:
Mobile Endpoints: Authenticate/reauthenticate as frequently as ten times per hour and refresh IP address as frequently as once per hour. Typical devices that fall under this category include wireless tablets, smart phones, and notebooks that are used to provide continuous network access while user is mobile.
Non-Mobile Endpoints: Authenticate/reauthenticate no more than once per Reauth Interval and refresh IP address no more than once per DHCP renew period (1/2 Lease). Typical devices that fall under this category include stationary network devices, desktops, and even wireless laptops that tend to stay in the same location for extended periods.
Hi we will try to implement ssl decryption on the Ironport and I was thinking if there is a way to block file typessuch as exe,pdf...) when Ironport decrypts SSL cert . I know how to do this for http traffic but was not sure how to configure it ...
Hi All, Quick design question. I have a WLAN that right now I send our AAA request to ISE. (ISE version 2.4) and I have two ISE nodes a Primary and a secondary. Would it be good practice to add my secondary node to the second server list on the WLAN....
Hello guys, I have a ipsec tunnel with a juniper device on the other end. we have to internal subnets : 192.168.25.0 and 192.168.135.0 The tunnel is only coming up with the first subnet and i can ping the other side 172.20...
Hello, I attempted to migrate anyconnect from ASA to FTD. We currently authenticate users using certificates only. The certs are issue to domain machine via our internal PKI. I exported the pkcs for the public cert and enrolled in FMC and that worke...
Hi Everyone. I've been trying to setup a simple network which has 1 firewall, 1 switch and 2 PCs. Please see the attachment for the topology. My goal is that I want my PCs can ping 220.127.116.11 of the 'internet' switch (from my attachment). But...
