I am extending wireless coverage to a new group of users, and wish to limit their total bandwidth. Considered QOS, but it doesn't seem to absolutely limit total bandwidth consumption. Instead am looking at using a wireless access point behind a hub or switch capable of setting specific maximum port throughput. For example, a wireless access point may connect with end-user devices at 54 Mbps, but with the hub/switch port set at 500 Kbps, the end-users would in total be limited to consuming 500 Kbps of bandwidth.
2 questions: 1) does this approach seem unnecessarily remedial; 2) can you recommend a recent (not necessarily new) small & cheap Cisco/Linksys hub/switch that allows ethernet port throughput restrictions down to ~500 Kbps?
The Class of Service (CoS) feature for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) enables network administrators to provide differentiated types of service across an MPLS network. Differentiated service satisfies a range of requirements by supplying for each packet transmitted the particular kind of service specified for that packet by its CoS. Service can be specified in different ways, for example, using the IP precedence bit settings in IP packets.
