Bandwidth control per user on the same SSID in RAP

Would like to know if the AP is RAP and in bridge mode.

Can I have bandwidth control base on per user or per SSID ?

Not in bridge mode, no.

ngiekeong,

 

All you can use is the RAP-bandwidth-reservation for certain applications in bridge mode:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_64_Web_Help/Web_Help_Index.htm#ArubaFrameStyles/Remote_AP/Uplink_Bandwidth_Reserva.htm?Highlight=reservation

 

Basically you set the bandwidth for certain  application traffic and the bandwidth of your uplink and it will reserve bandwidth for your specific applications.  All of the remaining traffic will be constrained to what is left of the uplink parameter.

If you can't change the bridge forwarding mode, one option is to use IAPs rather than RAPs.   If you setup IAPs at these sites and then utilize the IAP-VPN functionality for HQ connectivity (if required) rather than a traditional controller-based RAP, you could have the bandwidth controls you are seeking at that site.

 

Alternatively, you could consider a 7005 controller which coud serve the APs at the branch for a traditional controller-based architecture.
