This guide explains the setup of Edgecore Wireless Controller to act as a RADIUS server for different applications. In this guide, two scenarios will be illustrated:
1. Using the Wireless Controller as an external RADIUS server (Local and/or On-Demand databases) for a remote gateway
2. Using the Wireless Controller as a RADIUS server in 802.1X authentication (transparent login)
Note that for the first scenario, the remote gateway can be an Edgecore Wireless Controller or a third-party controller, and multiple remote gateways can be setup. Detailed configuration are shown in the following chapters.
Although there is no mentioning of "4G/5G offloading" in the document, once the customer follows the document and assign their RADIUS server (for SIM authentication) in EWS controller, the APs can support EAP-SIM (4G/5G offloading).
This technical guide provides the administrator with instructions on how to setup the scenarios above for different applications. Verification from the client side is also shown in the end of the document.
