Re: WLC user rate limit on guest ssid anchor controller
Thank you for taking the time to respond as well as the document link.
It was pretty clear on the steps and what it would impact.
Two things that push me for a different solution (assuming their is one).
Note The values that you configure for the per-user bandwidth contracts affect only the amount of bandwidth going downstream (from the access point to the wireless client). They do not affect the bandwidth for upstream traffic (from the client to the access point).
As you can see from the above note taken out of the linked document the roll based rate limit doesnt really rate limit the T1 traffic any guest user consumes it only limits usage from the AP down to the client.
#1 I am looking for a solution that limits the users up & down streams (if possible) & also before it leaves the AP for the T1.
The idea is to limit WAN utilization.
#2 I read in the forums here others asking about the "user role" and saw some comments saying it is not considered "best practice" to use user roles.
Let me clarify that our guest ssid's are using the http webpage pass through for authentication and it is really only the tic mark to indicate they understand the terms and conditions of using our internet as a guest service. No actual user accounts are used on the guest ssid's.
***One last question about this and any other changes***
Will any change I make be on the "Foreign, Anchor" or both Controllers?
