How much BW would consume airwave

I would like to ask how much BW would consume the airwave.

 

Let say a client with 25 APS and one controller? is airwave a big BW consumer?

 

Have the idea that the airwave will be in a central site

 

And let say that it will supoprt for example

 

100APS and 4 controllers but they will be reaching the airwave through internet.

 

Cheers

Carlos

Re: How much BW would consume airwave

I think it would probably only be about 100 kbps tops.

 

Off the top of my head, I manage an Airwave with 16 controllers and about 500 APs and I think it's on average about 600 kbps.


If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

Re: How much BW would consume airwave

According to our netflow collector, Airwave talking to an iAP cluster is around 300bps sustained.

We're not yet collecting flow data from our controller sites, so I can't speak to that.

Monitoring:

568 iAP (32 Clusters)

 1x3400 controller with 26 AP

 4x3600 controllers with 6, 94, 96 and 121 AP respectively

 1x3600 master controller

 plus a few switches and a router or two

 

the switchport where airwave connects shows 42kbps outbound and 340kbps inbound
