NAC N-450 Ethernet Interfaces and Fail Open Kits

Do the N-450 1 GIG Ethernet ports always require a FO Kit ? Or is the FO Kit only needed if the datalink is 1 Gigabyte? with 100 meg Ethernet datalinks is the FO Kit still required?

Also, looking for a good best Practice doc for NSM NAC only.

I am interested in a best practices doc as well, the documentation is good but a real world document would be great especially if you have not installed it before, possible some configuration guides for different types of network hardware

N-450 requires an extrenal FO kt and does not support internal Fail Open as all the ports are on N-450 are configurable and not fixed.
