Hi Guys,

There's any info on the ISW (Industrial Switches) related to authentication?

I find out it have some sort of "policy", but not the regular Enterasys/Extreme Policy, something like ACLs.

As I have some customers interested (and actually testing Transitions and other brands) with large Enterasys/Extreme installed bases, it could be very interesting, as I-Series is not available (at least here in Brazil) anymore.

The major question is if ISW will have some kind of "EAP Pass-Through" feature, like 800 Series, allowing users to be multi-authed on a upstream switch (G-Series / S-Series). If available, it should be awesome.

Best regards,

-Leo

The new X440-G2 has some models that can handle environments up to 60oC which are marketed as possible replacements for the I-Series if that's the reason you need industrial-grade switches.

Hi Guys,

The X440-G2 are not suitable for our customer needs... As the switch needs to work on a "hazardous" area (manufacturing) they use I-Series today and need some IPxx protection.

I saw at the Partner Portal about this new ISW series, but without much information, such as the questions I've raised above.

Best regards,

The new Industrial switches do not pass through EAP packets. This pass through mode is under consideration for a future release. The products do natively support 802.1X and MAC address based authentication.

Hello, everybody,

is it meanwhile possible to forward the EAP packages with the ISW model to
an EXOS switch (G2 - MultiAuth)?

Many thanks in advance!

With kind regards
