We are glad to share you that we have published Omada Controller 3.1.4 (Linux), which mainly adds Guest Network/Merge 2.4G and 5G SSID/Radius Accounting/API changes of Radius Portal.
You can download Omada Controller 3.1.4 (Linux) at the following link:
1. Guest Network
We change SSID Isolation as the Guest Network. With the Guest Network enabled, the devices connected in the same SSID of the same AP cannot communicate with each other, and guest network will block clients from reaching any private IP subnet.
2. Merge 2.4G and 5G SSID.
Omada Controller 3.1.4 merges the 2.4G and 5G SSID. The SSID on different radio band with the same name will be regarded as an identical SSID entry. When you upgrade your controller and restore the backup files from the controller with the version 3.0.5 or below, the SSID entries will be changed to the parameters of the original SSID on the 2.4GHz radio band.
3. Radius Accounting.
If we select WPA-Enterprise encryption when creating an SSID, we can enable Radius accounting to count the traffic of the client. With this feature, the user can be billed accordingly, and it can also be used for statistical purposes and general network monitoring.
4. API changes of Radius Portal
We add CHAP encryption and NAS ID in Radius portal authentication, and the Radius Client role is transferred from EAP to Omada Controller. If you use External Radius Server with External Web Portal in old version controller, pay attention that the API has been changed in this version. Thus you have to modify your External Web Portal, refer to FAQ-2390 for more details.
