Bandwidth Restriction for Guest SSID

Hello Airhead Community,

 

First time posting here and network newbie, so please, be kind :). I am trying to limit the amount of bandwidth accessible while connected to the office's Guest SSID, but cannot seem to find the setting.

 

I am able to see specific SSID settings for my Guest network under: Wireless > AP Configuration > AP Group > Wireless LAN > Virtual AP > SSID > 'Profile Details', but none of those options mention anything related to bandwidth limitations. 

 

I am using the Aruba Cloud Services Controller - SMO-ARUBA7005-WC01. 

 

Thank you for your help!

Hi oasix,

 

Bandwidth restrictions are handled in the role. So you need to figure out which role is used for your guests. For that role, you can define bandwidth limitations:Bandwidth Limits.png

 

Those limits can be defined on a per-role basis, which means, that all clients with role will get the amount of bandwidth, or per-user, which means, that every user with this role will get this amount of bandwidth or on a per-ap-group basis, which means, that all clients connected to the same AP group will get this amount of bandwidth.

Thanks for the reply, FlorianBaaske. 

 

So will joining the Guest SSID tag each client with a specific role? If not, how would I assign roles to these guest devices not currently connected to the network?

 

 

Additionally, my UI looks a bit different – screenshot attached. Do you know where those settings are on this version? 

 

Apologies in advance for my basic questions.

Hi oasix,

 

looks like you are running 6.x software. that's not a problem, the concept is the same. 

 

You need to go into the role and create a new bandwidth rule:

And you need to make sure, that this role is assigned to the guest by selecting the role as the authenticated role in the VAP's AAA profile:

Hope this helps.
