Bandwidth Management for Wireless Clients

We are looking at putting in a solution at a hotel for Free Guest WiFI

The solution would cover 4 floors and about 120 rooms and some open areas .

In short the hardware would look as follows

2500 controller

1142LAP

2960 PoE switch

878 Adsl router for internet connectivity (20Mbps/1Mbps internet ADSL feed)

One of the concerns raised by the client is that they would like to make sure that no single user could eat up too much bandwidth creating problems for the rest of the users .

Can the above KIT or something similar achieve this objective? As far as I can think of we would require a Proxy server .

Thank you

Re: Bandwidth Management for Wireless Clients

You would need to use a 3rd party software that users would login against and that would be able to throttle the user bandwidth. Just search for wireless hotspot. The equipment you have listed can work along side of that.

Hi Scott,

Thank you for your response.

It would be better for users to not have to log on against a web interface. As this is a hotel they would not want to have the admin effort of creating/enabling/disabling users especially since this will be free.

Instead what would suit their needs is a sort of a protection mechanism against "crazy big" downloads . Ideally without the need of a 3rd party that would require them to buy a server as well .

Thanks

You can assign QoS value of your choice per SSID.

There would only be 1 SSID for all the guest wireless users
