Controller Based WLANs

Troubleshooting Low Client Throughput Related Issues

Wireless networks are a shared medium where a client's throughput can be affected due to various factors, including:

  • Data rates (802.11 a/b/g/n)
  • Received signal strength indication (RSSI) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
  • RF interference
  • RF coverage

While most WLAN networks are designed to provide optimal performance and connectivity, the RF network may degrade over time, as it is susceptible to dynamic changes. One of the symptoms of a degraded RF network is low client throughput. This topic discusses the potential causes of low throughput, methods to isolate the issue, best practice recommendations, and relevant troubleshooting methodology.
