This updated version includes new features like hotspot-style enforcement support, a Catalyst-based captive portal allowing easier customizations, many telco-oriented features (WRIX, inline layer 3, status page to extend network access, etc.), brand new Android provisioning agent, new equipment support from Enterasys, Huawei and Juniper, improved Eduroam integration and many performance improvements. If you are facing BYOD challenges and wondering how to handle theses devices with the networking equipment you have? Look at PacketFence! A VMWare appliance is available for download, as well as Live CD (or USB) version."
