Same max 200Mb limit on ios13 and win10 devices.

Tried lowering firmware back to 8.5.0.1. Same issue.

We answer this question quite a few times on the forum, and everyone gets differing results based on their setup and different factors; many that are beyond control.  Outside of a lab environment, where everything can be controlled, the main limiting factors are the client(s) in use and environmental factors.  If you want to pursue this, you can open a Technical Support case and obtain their assistance to help you running these tests, but again, the environment, since wireless is a shared medium, will probably be the most limiting factor.

For reference... I use a AP-325 with ArubaOS 8.6.0.0 at 80mhz (one AP without co-channel interference (not advised in office environments). My iPerf test are 500Mbit/sec download with iPhone8 and Windows 10 with 802.11ac 2x2 antenna.

 

If your have low throughput at different type of devices then its no diver issue at the client side and should the main reason be RF interference or low signal strength (low SNR), or at the LAN side but your checked that allready.

 

Use a spectrum analyser like Ekahau or if dont have that, download WinFi Lite and look for RSSI,SNR, channel ulitization (calculated without spectrum analyser), 802.11 standard. Also check if you have high re-transmission rates. Is VHT enabled in you configuraton?

 

Also note that the channel 149 is in the 5GHz U-NII-3 band what give you max. 25mw EIRP in the Europe regulatory domain (what should be fine with a good AP placement plan. Standard Recommendation, lower your tx power to around 30mw and equals to the tx power of your weakest client device). See attachment.

 

 


Thanks for the suggestions.

 

I think what I find odd is that there have been no config changes nor changes to the "air". Speed tests that used to be consistently at 300-400Mb, are now almost "locked" at a ceiling of 200Mb.Never goes higher then around 200Mb. Seems almost like a setting is creating a limit.

Re: Bandwidth limit

Please open a case with Technical Support and let us know here how it goes.  The only thing I see that can be affecting your performance is changing "preferred-access"

air-time-fairness-mode 

to default access.

Re: Bandwidth limit

What are your RSSI,SNR and 802.11 re-transmission rate levels on the client device?

 

On a Iphone RSSI is visible through the airport utility app (enable in application settings first).

SNR and re-tranmissions are best visible in your controller.
