Wireless LAN : Cisco WLC and per Client Throughput
I have doubt on how to calculate (theoretical) a wireless client throughput.
1 Wireless LAN controller 5560/5508
2 Wireless AP 3700 (802.11ac supported)
3. Wireless Client Laptop A (Source) 802.11ac supported
4. Wireless Client Laptop B (Destination) 802.11ac supported
5. Scenario :- Laptop A and B on same subnet
6. Scenario : Laptop A and B on different subnet (Core Switch is doing routing for them)
What will be throughput in scenario A?
What will be throughput in scenario B?
I am getting confused that 3rd generation (3700AP and 5508/60 WLC) WLAN/AP all traffic passed from
Client --> AP --> WLAN Controller --> Destination Server/PC
If the above is the case then i always depend on WLAN throughput to get better result..if above case if i configured even only 10 client per AP also my thrighput alwayes depends on total number of clients and WLC throughput
formula will be
Per user throughput = WLC Throughput/No. of client
is above understand correct ? or
Per user throughput = AP Throghput/No. of client per AP
In Scenario A, if the configuration is Flex Connect, the theoretical throughput will be the minimum offered between the Access Point and the Switch. If not then the minimum between the AP, Switch and the WLC.
In Scenario B, since the core switch also comes into picture so the device providing the least throughput will become the bottleneck in the entire data path.
Regarding per user throughput your understanding is correct.
