How to set up rate limit through EAP controller

Suitable for: Omada Controller 2.5.1 or above and EAP products with corresponding firmware.

What is Rate Limit?

Rate Limit is used to set the limit of download rate and upload rate for the clients. With Rate Limit configured, we can protect the network bandwidth from being occupied too much by some of the clients.

Omada Controller supports three types of rate limit: Rate Limit Based on SSID, Rate Limit Based on Clients and Rate Limit Based on Voucher/Local User. When you configure more than one type of rate limit at the same time, only the configuration with minimum rate limit value will take effect.

Note: Only Omada Controller 2.6.0 or above supports Rate Limit Based on Clients.
