Continuing the 802.1X conversation, Network World recently put out test results for 10G access switches and included a whole section on 802.1X functionality. The article does a pretty good job running through many common 802.1X scenarios and highlights the breadth of functionality most modern switches have. While I’m not sure 10G to the desktop is necessary for all but the most demanding environments, most of the 802.1X functionality described here is available on much lower speed (and more affordable) switches from the same manufacturers. Wired 802.1X has seen quite a surge of interest of late as this article corroborates.
