GX50 LAN to Internet throughput buffering

Hi,

 

Trying to get ahead of a new customer install.

 

ISP is providing 900Mbps service, standard PPPoE. 

 

Whilst the GX50 can handle Gigabit connections, the throughput is 500Mbps given FW feature, clearly there is a gap between 900Mbps and 500Mbps, therefore how does the GX50 handle the overrun for a short period of time? Is it a case of buffering or are packets simply dropped?? If it is buffering how much can be buffered??

 

Any thoughts or experiences welcome.

 

Thanks,

I speed tested my gx50 from ports on the gx50, ports on the 1sst switch, devices connected to APs.   from physical ports I got 800mb.  from APs I got 300mb.

 

 

interesting statistics. Are you running MG access points?

yes

 

meshed

 

i suspect if unmeshed, thru out from APs would be higher.

 

 

Yes it would be for sure

 

I have been testing today, pulling together stats but throughput within router is not easy to identify as it would be with enterprise/carrier class platforms
