Cisco ISE Guest Services
Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) guest services enable you to provide secure network access to guests such as visitors, contractors, consultants, and customers. You can support guests with base Cisco ISE licenses, and you can choose from several deployment options depending on your company’s infrastructure and feature requirements.
Cisco ISE provides web-based and mobile portals to provide on-boarding for guests and employees to your company’s network and internal resources and services.
From the Admin portal, you can create and edit guest and sponsor portals, configure guest access privileges by defining their guest type, and assign sponsor privileges for creating and managing guest accounts.
End-User Guest and Sponsor Portals in Distributed Environment
Cisco ISE end-user web portals depend on the Administration, Policy Services, and Monitoring personas to provide configuration, session support, and reporting.
Administration Node—Configuration changes that you make to users, devices, and end-user portals are written to the Administration node.
Policy Services Node—The end-user portals run on a Policy Services Node, which handles all session traffic, including: network access, client provisioning, guest services, posture, and profiling. If a Policy Service Node is part of a node group, and one node fails, the other nodes detect the failure and reset any pending sessions.
Monitoring Node—The Monitoring node collects, aggregates, and reports data about the end-user and device activity on the My Devices, Sponsor, and Guest portals. If the primary Monitoring node fails, the secondary Monitoring node automatically becomes the primary Monitoring node.
