Students bringing their own devices in
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything on the non-technical side if things. I've been asked to do some research into what other schools do.
I'd like to offer 6th form students here the ability to use their own laptops/netbooks on the school's wireless network (with a captive portal, specific ESSID+VLAN, MAC authentication, firewall zone/policies, transparent proxy to enforce the usual filtering policies and only allowing them internet access, no fileserver/printing/other access). I'm happy with the technical side of things. The 6th form students ask for access, but I'm not allowed to let them use it yet.
So, do you provide guest-style wireless access? If so, who do you allow guest-style access to? What access do you provide them with? What devices do you permit? Are they required to register in some fashion? Are they required to meet certain criteria before being permitted access? (Such as having some AV software installed, registering their MAC address with the IT support team or similar).
Thanks in advance,
