We are about to embark on an MPLS rollout (in a hub and spoke configuration - all remote offices will connect to the main office for Internet). We have about 1400 users. Which NAC solution would be right for us: 3 500 user servers or 1 1500 user server?

This kinda depends if you're going for a centralized or de-centralized design....depending on the number of users per site.

You could go for a 3310 in your central site (up to 500 users) and use ISR NAC modules or other 3310's in the branch offices...

Central site I would go for IB deployment and for the branch sites you can choose either OOB or IB.

or just pop a 3350 in your central site and have all clients authenticated by that appliance..

hope this helps,

Thanks for your reply. I would like to keep it centralized to keep the cost down. I was considering the 3350, but our vendor was worried about the throughput between the NAC device and our Core switch (it's only 1Gbps). I don't want to create any bottleneck issues.
