Example: Printer; VOIP Phone; NTP; BMS (Building Managment System); Temperature/Humidity; Security Cameras; Security Controllers

A sample switch config might look something like.

aaa new-model
aaa authentication dot1x default group radius
aaa authorization network default group radius
aaa accounting dot1x default start-stop group radius
