Virtual WLC 7.5 - AP Enforced Rate Limiting

In the vWLC 7.5 deployment guide in the enhancments section, there is a feature called "AP Enforced Rate Limiting"

But I cannot find any information beyond that.

Here is the guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/controller/technotes/7.5/Cisco_VirtualWirelessController75.html#wp43370

Looking how this might be implemented.

In particular to rate limit traffic by WLAN.

My understanding is that the Bandwidth Contracts under the WLAN QOS settings do not apply.

Thanks

Virtual WLC 7.5 - AP Enforced Rate Limiting

Rate  limiting is enforced at the AP level. It is not possible to enforce  rate limiting at the virtual controller level because per client  downstream rate limiting is not supported for central switching WLANs  when traffic is terminated at the virtual controller.

Per  client downstream rate limiting is supported if the virtual controller  is a foreign controller tunneling traffic to another controller  platform, for example, a Cisco 5500 Series Wireless LAN Controller.

Virtual WLC 7.5 - AP Enforced Rate Limiting

Thanks for the info.

As usual I got myself confused, as I was looking at the 7.5 deployment guide and reading 7.4 release notes.

I see in the 7.5 release notes it is as you stated.

What was getting me is that I was testing in my lab on 7.5 and it did not work with local switching.

But I was using an old 1130 AP.

I tested in a production environment with a 2600 AP and it worked as expected.

Maybe that feature is specific to the type of AP.

Thanks again

Bill
