shaping-policy

Defines the Station Shaping Policy This feature has the following three options:

default-access: Traffic shaping is disabled, and client performance is dependent on MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. contention resolution. This is the default traffic shaping setting.

fair-access: Each client gets the same airtime, regardless of client capability and capacity. This option is useful in environments like a training facility or exam hall, where a mix of 802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps./g, 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network. and 802.11n802.11n is a wireless networking standard to improve network throughput over the two previous standards, 802.11a and 802.11g. With 802.11n, there will be a significant increase in the maximum raw data rate from 54 Mbps to 600 Mbps with the use of four spatial streams at a channel width of 40 MHz. clients need equal to network resources, regardless of their capabilities. The bw-alloc parameter of a traffic management profile allows you to set a minimum bandwidth to be allocated to a virtual AP profile when there is congestion on the wireless network.You must set traffic shaping to fair-access to use this bandwidth allocation value for an individual virtual AP.

The bw-alloc parameter of a traffic management profile allows you to set a minimum bandwidth to be allocated to a virtual AP profile when there is congestion on the wireless network. You must set traffic shaping to fair-access to use this bandwidth allocation value for an individual virtual AP.

Example

The following command configures a traffic management profile that allocates bandwidth to the corpnet virtual AP:

(host) [md] (config) #wlan traffic-management-profile best

(host) [md] (Traffic management profile "best") #bw-alloc virtual-ap corpnet share 75
