I need a 24 port managed Gigabit switch that can let people connect to the network based on their network card's MAC address. If the MAC address is known then it lets them connect, if the MAC address is not known then the switch would reject all traffic from the computer. Basically the switch needs to have a MAC based ACL. It also has to be under $800. All ports have to be gigabit, not just a couple.
I need this because the location where this switch is to be installed is not really secure. And the patch panel is used by two tenents, which means that one tenent could sneakily connect a patch wire from the patch panel to the switch and steal internet, try hacking the server, or simply infect workstations.
So if you know of any gigabit switches that do this, please post them.
Thanks, Nite Rider
