802.1X re-auth timer

Userlevel 7

my customer likes to set a timer of 1 hour after every client need to re-auth via 802.1X.

I've set the session timer in the WLAN service to 60 but from the log I'd see that this result in a de-auth and the client starts a new auth and I loose one ping during this process.
Is there a other method so the re-auth is done in the background without loosing any data.

Is there a option to set a certain role in the case the controller can't reach the RADIUS.

I use the session-timeout value in NPS, works fine. I see maybe 1 ping drop if any. I just tested with a two-minute value.
