I have a need to setup conference rooms that will be used by both corporate and foreign or guest devices. I would like to use wired and wireless for flexibility and video conferencing. NAC seems like a no brainer but am curious if I should look into a Wireless Lan Contoller device of some sort too? Wouldn't a NAC do the same thing as what a WLC would do?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

NAC would simply be a security solution for your network while a WLC would assist in the actual deployment and operation of your wireless network. If you’re in the market for Cisco products, check out their descriptions of Network Admission Controllers and Wireless LAN Controllers.

Hope this helps!
