Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.2

Cisco released their latest version of Prime Infrastructure (PI) recently with version 2.2.1.

Offering support for Identity Services Engine (ISE) 1.3, IOS XE 3.7 and AireOS 8.x.

There are some long awaited features available such as Layer 2 Network Topology Mapping, User Interface and Map Performance improvements, Intelligent WAN (IWAN) Provisioning, and Tech Packs which deliver new features without waiting long periods for minor and major version upgrades.

A full list of the updates and roadmap can be read here:

http://www.flexnet-ts.com/public/pi22update.pdf

All this sounds great and you’re thinking –

“Let’s upgrade our Prime now!”

Right?

Sadly there is no direct in-place upgrade available due to the core OS platform version and the choice for internally or externally hosted database configurations.

So what now?

FlexNet Technology Solutions Limited have experienced consultants who can assist you with upgrading your Cisco Prime Infrastructure to the latest version and migrate your data across to the new platform.

Contact us if you would like to discuss this article in more detail or if you require any assistance in upgrading your Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

FlexNet TS Completes Cisco ISE BYOD Project

by www.flexnet-ts.com on 20th August 2014

www-logo-no-textcisco-ise

FlexNet Technology Solutions Limited have just completed a complex Cisco ISE solution for a large corporate client based in London to provide wireless access for Corporate, Mobile, Bring Your Own Device and Guest Access.

ISE for BYOD

The BYOD solution identifies, on-boards, and enforces secure access for virtually any mobile device. The profiler identifies the latest mobile devices and enforces device security through integration with Cisco partner MDM solutions.

ISE for Guest Access

Authorised workers, or Sponsors, can grant guests internet access on any wired or wireless company network without posing a threat to security. Access is controlled by security policy, which includes automated guest lifecycle management.

ISE for Secure Access

Secure access control is available for virtually every endpoint on the network. ISE is continually updated with new BYOD mobile device profiles and prevalent endpoints – so you have extensive visibility.

Security

Security was paramount to the design but simplicity and ease of management was also, which as we all know do not typically go hand-in-hand. FlexNet TS were able to utilise the power of Cisco ISE’s policy sets to define and create simple, yet secure policies to on-board any device over 802.1x EAP-TLS.

Contact us if you are thinking of deploying Cisco ISE for a wired or wireless infrastructure and we’ll be happy to assist you.
