Traffic shaping

Please add Traffic Shaping to the BR500.

 

Let admins prioritise a specific VLAN and limit or garantee a given amount of bandwidth.

 

For Example:

WAN connection 50Mbps UP/DOWN

VLAN1 contains servers

VLAN2 contains desktops

VLAN3 contains VOIP phones

VLAN4 wifi office

VLAN5 wifi guests

 

When Windows Updates are downloaded on the servers each day at rondom moments, users complain that connections to Office365 is slow. Also during the day users complain that VOIP calls are disconnected of audio quality suffers.

Sometimes when Guests are using the Wifi, all these problems seem to happen aswell.

 

Solution:

Create a traffic shaping rule for VLAN1: Set the priority to medium and limit the maximum bandwitdh to 30Mbps shared.

Create a traffic shaping rule for VLAN2: Set the priority to medium no limits

Create a traffic shaping rule for VLAN3: Set the priority to high and set a garanteed bandwitdh of 5Mbps shared.

Create a traffic shaping rule for VLAN4: Set the priority to medium no limits

Create a traffic shaping rule for VLAN5: Set the prioriy to low and limit the maximum bandwitch to 5Mbps per session.
