Hi. We work at a small college and are designing our wireless network implementation using Aruba equipment. The question we can't seem to find the answer to is "how does BMC optimization work?". We are all Cisco techs, so we understand ACLs, traffic filtering & shaping, QoS priorities, etc, but have not been able to find a technical Aruba document describing technically how this function works in Aruba. Is it a filtering mechanism like ACLs that permits certain bcasts (like DHCP & mDNS and filters everything else) or is it a throttling process that sets bcast priority and bandwidth reservation to zero? Or is it something entirely different? It would be nice to see a process diagram, as well, so we can get an image of where the throttling/dropping/passing of BCMC traffic occurs. Thanks to anyone who can help!
Thanks for the quick reply. Based strictly on destination MAC? At the controller or actually at the user connection at the AP?
At Aruba, we believe that the most dynamic customer experiences happen at the Edge. Our mission is to deliver innovative solutions that harness data at the Edge to drive powerful business outcomes.
