IAP-325 or dual eth IAPs wire speed
11-15-2018 03:44 PM
Has anyone tested the wire speed on any of the dual ethernet IAPs with iperf3 server and client on each of the port (essentially making the IAP a switch/hub)?
I have an open ticket with an IAP-325 and was told that the throughput result of 3xxMbps is expected. I don't quite understand why the result is so low, when both ethernet ports are negotiated at 1G full duplex.
Thanks in advance.

I have not tested, but I imagine that this is because of packets being processed by CPU and passed between the two ports i.e. there isn't actually a 2-port ASIC in there like a switch would have.
