Have the guest Wi-Fi clients used too much bandwidth recently, stealing it from other Wi-Fi clients who were supposed to have priority? Well, this is not an issue anymore. You can now specify the maximum bandwidth per each SSID and protect the clients that matter most!
This is just a first step to implement a broader feature set that will allow to protect your Wi-Fi clients and control the policy to grant access. Our R&D is also working on:
- per client bandwidth control: it will be possible not only to protect an SSID (such as the Members SSID from the Guests SSID), but also to protect a client accessing to a specific SSID from other clients that are connected to the same SSID.
The latest release also added the following feature:
- Abuse Control: it is possible to specify the maximum number of connections that are allowed per each Wi-Fi client within a specified time-frame. For example, if you manage the Wi-Fi for a coffee shop chain, you’ll be able to avoid users having more than two 30-minutes-free-internet-sessions every 24 hours.More info about Abuse Control, limiting the number of Wi-Fi sessions and blocking specific Wi-Fi clients through Black Lists, available through this link.
