The macmon’s Guest Portal is more than suitable to meet all these needs. With a single username and password, or better yet, using an existing Active Directory user, students can register and manage their devices using macmon’s Captive Portal. In this way, many definable devices can be enabled, where each device registration in the network is clear to the user. This allows institutions to keep track of managed devices and connections to users without any administrative effort.
Based on location, access can be defined in many ways, for example by user or group – Internet-only access, internal network-only access, both, etc. – while the access rights themselves are available as long as the user account is valid. Graphically adapted to the respective institution, regardless of the LAN and WLAN structure and hardware used, highly flexible thanks to a fully developed role concept and easy to use thanks to an automatic and dynamic set of rules, macmon NAC with the Guest Service and BYOD portal is suitable for every institution.
Due to the complexity of devices and the fluctuation of users, macmon offers a licensing model adapted to the needs of education. While the numbers of devices are fixed in administrative areas, a flexible user-based licensing model is available for students. Each user can operate multiple devices simply by using a simple registration portal. To support the fundamental importance of research and teaching, we have also considered the use of student access so that the price of our EDU licenses reflects their use.
