Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) is a networking
protocol that provides centralized Authentication, Authorization, and
Accounting (AAA or Triple A) management for users who connect and use a
network service. RADIUS was developed by Livingston Enterprises, Inc. in
1991 as an access server authentication and accounting protocol and later
brought into the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards.
Yes, you can use this networking protocol on all EnGenius access point
products (i.e. models in the EAP, ECB, ENS, ENH, and EWS series), provided
that you have Radius Server with Active Directory.
