Wireless QoS question

Hi All


Got a question around QoS on MR


From document https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/WiFi_Basics_and_Best_Practices/Wireless_QoS_and_Fast_Lane " Meraki Access Points honor all upstream QoS sent by the client "


Does this mean, if I have a (L2 Bridged) SSiD that has no client bandwidth restrictions (unlimted for all protocols etc), then Meraki will shape the traffic on the AP, giving priority to Video if the client is sending DSCP QoS tagged packets, and the AP is congested ?




Do I need to create traffic shaping rules, with a definition of all VoIP & Video Conferencing, obey or maintain unlimited bandwidth, but set DSCP tagging (for example 46 EF expedited forwarding..), like this ?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Wireless QoS question

it means it does not strip the DSCP marking and set it to 0.


i don't think qos works from client-to-AP because the ap does not know what DSCP tag is send from the client-to-ap before it received the packet.

Re: Wireless QoS question

Fastlane is only available for Apple clients.  It is not available for bridged links.


I don't think there is any QoS options for bridged linkes.  You can shape other traffic down to try and reserve capacity for VoIP if you like.
