Need help getting iPads on private Cisco wireless LAN

Hello Experts - I need some help getting my Cisco wireless network to work with our company's iPads.  We currently have two networks, one public for guests and another which is private for our internal network.  We have a number of iPad users who VPN in over the public internet then RDP to their desktops and use OWA.  I'd love for them to be able to use the private wireless network to automatically connect them when they walk in the building so they can RDP and use OWA without the VPN.

We're using a Cisco 2504 controller and Aironet access points.  We' using RADIUS for authenticating the Windows users with the private profile which of course won't work on the iPad.  I could use some help configuring a new profile for the iPad so they can authenticate hands-off using an installed certificate.  I'd appreciate any advice, thanks!

You're going to need to use SCEP or a third-party MDM solution if you want to deploy certificates.  This would usually involve creating a provisioning SSID which only allows the device to connect to a provisioning URL to enroll for a device certificate.

Have a look at this Apple article regarding MDM...
