“Hi, I am the technical manager of an high school and we would need to use the Microsoft 365 platform as a RADIUS server to authenticate users of our WiFi network.

Some relevant notes/links shared by the team:

  • Is RADIUS really required? Modern ENT Wifi has more options. But, if necessary, RADIUS could be virtual or physical. I do not believe Azure has a RADIUS service per se.
