The old school way was pam_ldap and nss_ldap.  nlscd was written to 
address some architectural shortcomings in nss_ldap, and so was sssd.

I would definitely go with sssd.  Its caching is much better, so it's 
going to scale much better.  It's the default mechanism in Fedora 
releases, so if you need to compare configuration to another client OS 
you'll be better equiped.
