Platinum QoS profile limits data traffic

Unanswered Question
Nov 18th, 2008


I have WLC which controls a WLAN that hosts data traffic and VoIP traffic.

I have enabled Platinum QoS profile and the throughput of the WLAN decreases to approximately 10 Mbps (With bronze QoS profile throughput was like 22~25 Mbps).

I would like to know how does the QoS profile limit the throughput of the WLAN? WLC gives a warning that data traffic will be affected but that doesn't tell much about the actual mechanism of traffic limiting.

I used iperf software sending UDP data @ 500 Mbps to measure the throughput.

Is it absolutely necessary that your data and voice clients be on the same SSID? Seems like things would work better if your voice clients were on a platinum SSID and your data clients were on a different bronze/silver SSID.
