Configure Network Access Control
The OmniVista Cirrus Network Access group of applications are accessed by clicking on the Network Access option under the “Configure” section of the OmniVista Cirrus Menu.
When you click on the Network Access option, the following list of applications is provided to assist with configuring access controls for the wireless network:
Unified Access - The Unified Access application provides unified wireless device configuration of security functions for Access Points (APs) on OmniAccess Wireless devices. In addition to device authentication and classification, you can create Access Role Profiles (similar to User Network Profiles) to configure network access controls for one or more user devices. Unified Access contains applications that work together with the Authentication Servers application to seamlessly authenticate and configure QoS for both device types.
UPAM-NAC - The Unified Policy Authentication Manager (UPAM) is a unified access management platform for Stellar AP Series devices. UPAM supports both Captive Portal server and RADIUS server; and can be used to implement MAC authentication and Captive Portal authentication. User Profiles can be supported in the OmniVista database or on external servers.
User Accounts - The Accounts application is used to create login accounts for specific types of users (Employees, Guests) in the local UPAM database. In addition, a Company Property List provides the ability to define devices owned by a company (for example, printers, IP phones, laptops, tablets) and specify which user accounts can access the devices for daily use.
