Bandwidth Usage

The bandwidth consumption for an employee or guest network can be limited based on the client MAC address. The configured limit will be maintained even when the client roams from one AP to another within the network. As an alternative, you can choose to set the bandwidth on an entire network, instead of restricting the usage per client.

To configure a bandwidth limit for each client connected to the network, follow these steps:

  1. Tap Networks () tile on the Instant On home page and select an employee network or guest network from the list.
  2. Tap the More options drop-down.
  3. Tap Bandwidth Usage.
  4. Set the Limit bandwidth usage toggle switch to enabled ().
  5. Tap the Client radio button and move the slider to set the speed limit between 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps for the employee or guest network. The limit is set to 1 Gbps by default.
  6. The changes are auto saved. Tap the back arrow () to return to the employee or guest network details page.

To configure a bandwidth limit on the per-AP SSID network, follow these steps:

  1. Tap Networks () tile on the Instant On home page and select an employee network or guest network from the list.
  2. Select the employee or guest network and tap the More options drop-down.
  3. Tap Bandwidth Usage.
  4. Set the Limit bandwidth usage toggle switch to enabled ().
  5. Tap the Network radio button and move the slider to set the speed limit between 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps for the employee or guest network. The limit is set to 1 Gbps by default.
