The Client Quality of Service (QoS) Association section provides additional options for the customization of a wireless client QoS. These options include the bandwidth the client is allowed to send, receive, or guaranteed. Client QoS Association can further be manipulated with the use of Access Control Lists (ACLs).
This article aims to show you how to configure client QoS association on your wireless access point. It assumes that you have already configured the following prerequisites when configuring Client QoS Association:
Class Map. For instructions on creating a class map, click here.
Policy Map. For instructions on creating a policy map, click here.
Client QoS Global Settings. For instructions on enabling Client QoS Global Settings, click here.
Configure Client QoS Association
Step 1. Log in to the web-based utility of the access point and then choose Client QoS > Client QoS Association.
Step 2. In the Interface area, choose the radio or Ethernet interface on which you want to configure the QoS parameters.
Note: In this example, VAP 0 (WAP571-5GHz) under Radio 1 (5 GHz) is chosen.
Step 3. Check the Client QoS Enable check box for the chosen interface.
Step 4. Enter the maximum allowed transmission rate from the WAP in bits per second (bps) in the Bandwidth Limit Down field. You can enter a value between 0 to 1300 Mbps.
Note: In this example, 650 is entered.
Step 5. Enter the maximum allowed transmission rate from the client to the WAP in bits per second. You can enter a value between 0 to 1300 Mbps.
Note: In this example, 600 is entered.
Step 6. Choose a DiffServ policy applied to traffic sent to the WAP for the selected interface.
Note: In this example, Policy_Map_1 is chosen.
Step 7. Click Save to save the changes to the startup configuration file.
You should now have successfully configured the client QoS on your WAP.
