We are in the beginning stages of looking to implement NAC. Our network consists of 88 locations all on the same LAN. We want to implement OOB however we have run into a snag where there are an average of 20-30 unmanaged switches at each location that will need to be replaced. Replacing them with Cisco's cheapest switch the 2900 will blow the project cost sky high. Has anyone had any luck using a cheaper non-cisco switch?
I have this problem too.
