Has anyone deployed 802.1x authentication for their wired networks?  Many of the deployments of 802.1x have focused on using EAP types that are appropriate for securing wireless LAN's (using EAPOL-Key distribution, for instance), but it sounds like 802.1x has a lot more potential in providing AAA-style services for wired networks.

What kind of deployments are in use for wired-networks?  What clients, EAP methods are people using?  What challenges were encountered in deploying this technology?
