It shouldn't cause issues - but you will observe the latency (as well 
clients when authenticating).

Most EAP timers are on the order of seconds, not sub-second. Just be 
aware of the various timers, and don't tune them aggressively.

Obviously if you can co-locate a RADIUS server with the NAS, this is 
preferable. Clearly not possible for eduroam, but if you have the option.

What kind of deployment are you doing?
