Traffic Control QoS Guide
AirLive WL-5460AP/ WL-5470AP E11 Firmware
What is Traffic Control QoS?
Traffic Control is a great tool to
control the bandwidth of the
WISP subscribers.
Therefore,
WISP operators can offer
different class of connection
speeds for different subscription
- just like the ADSL service!
AirLive advance firmware can
control the bandwidth by Interface or IP/MAC.

The
What type of Traffic Bandwidth Control does the E11 firmware offer?
The E11 firmware’s Traffic Bandwidth limits the “Maximum Data Rate”.
of Traffic Control it offers.
There are 2 types
Interface Control
The interface QoS controls the data rate at the
WLAN and LAN interfaces. Therefore, all
traffics are controlled the same way. This type of
traffic control is suitable when AP is used as a
Client AP in “Client Mode” and WISP mode. So
WISP can control the maximum data rate
Individual IP/MAC Control
The AP can set the maximum data rate
for each IP or MAC addresses. This
type of traffic control is most suitable
for outdoor AP in “AP” or “Gateway”
mode.
What is the Output Rate?
The “Output Rate” is the data speed out of an interface.
supported by the AP
There are 3 types Output Rate
1.
LAN Output Rate: This is the speed of the traffic out of the LAN port. In gateway
mode, the LAN Output Rate includes both the wired LAN and WLAN interface.
2.
WLAN Output Rate: This is the speed of the traffic out of the Wireless LAN
3.
WAN Output Rate: This is the speed of the traffic out of the WAN port.
mode, the WAN Output Rate also includes the WLAN interface.
In WISP
The AP’s Web UI will tell you which types of output rate it supports, it differs in each wireless
mode.
In the following example:
z The AP is in Gateway Mode
z The WAN Output Rate is 128K
z The LAN/WLAN Output Rate is 1024K
In this setup, the notebook users get an upstream bandwidth of 128K and downstream
bandwidth of 1024K.
Configure the Traffic Control QoS
From the Mode Setting page, please choose the “Traffic Control(QoS)” on the bottom of the
list.
Once you click on the “setup” button, a new window will pop-up with the Traffic Control
settings.
They are divided into “A”, “B”, “C”, “D” section for further explanations.
A

C
D
This section is the “Interface
Control” session. You must
disable the “interface Traffic
Control” if you want to use the
“IP/MAC Traffic Control”
This section is for defining the
“Policy” of “Individual IP/MAC
Traffic Control”. Once a policy
is defined, it can be chosen as
template in IP/MAC Traffic
Control Settings
This section is to configure the
bandwidth by IP address. You
can control more than one IP
address.
This section is to configure the
bandwidth by MAC address.
You can control more than one
MAC address.
A.
Interface Control Settings:
In the Interface Control Settings, the AP only controls the total bandwidth limit of an interface.
For example, if you want to limit the output data rate of
the LAN to 512K and the output data rate of WLAN to
1024K. You should perform the following steps:
1. Enable the “Interface Traffic Control
2. Enter “512” in the “LAN Output Rate”
3. Enter “1024” in the “WLAN Output Rate”
4. Click on “Save”
5. Reboot the AP.
B. Define Policy
A policy is a set of bandwidth rules that can be used as a template.
to provide 2 kinds of bandwidth speed to
the users:
z VIP Subscriber:
„ LAN Out Rate: 512 Kbps
„ WLAN Out Rate: 1024 Kbps
z Regular Subscriber:
„ LAN Out Rate: 64 Kbps
„ WLAN Out Rate: 512 Kbps
For example, if you want
You can configure the bandwidth rule as policies “VIP” and “Regular”.
Please follow the step below to create a new policy “VIP”
1. Enter “VIP” for the “PolicyName”
2. Enter “512” for the “LAN Out Rate”
3. Enter “1024” for the “WLAN Out Rate”
4. Enter “VIP Subscriber” for the “Comment”
5. Click on “Save” button
6. Now the “VIP” policy will show up in the “Current Policy Table”
Once finished, the administrator will be able to choose the policy “VIP” for their IP/MAC
Traffic Control.
C. Bandwith Control by IP address
You can set the maximum bandwidth of a PC or a subscriber by using the IP Control.
Please follow the procedure below to setup IP Traffic Control
1. Please make sure the “Interface Traffic Control” is disabled
2. Before you start, please check the following area to see which client IPs are supported.
It differs between each mode.
Please check this part to find out what IP addresses
are supported. It varies between each mode

Enable the IP Control
If you have defined a Policy already, please choose a Policy name. The “Out Rates”
will be automatically pasted from the Policy template. You cannot change the Out
Rates if you have chosen a Policy
If you want to define new Data Rate, please do not choose any policies. Then you can
enter the values in the “LAN”, “WLAN”, or “WAN” Out Rates.
Press “Save” to save settings
Reboot your AP.
* If you want to control the traffic flow between the IPs in the same interface, please make sure both IPs are
configured for the IP Traffic Control.
D. Bandwith Control by MAC address
You can set the maximum bandwidth of a PC or a subscriber by using the MAC Control.
Please follow the procedure below to setup MAC Traffic Control
1. Please make sure the “Interface Traffic Control” is disabled
2. Before you start, please check the following area to see which client MACs are
supported. It differs between each mode.
3. Enable the MAC Control
Please check this part to find out what IP addresses
are supported. It varies between each mode

Rates if you have chosen a Policy
If you want to define new Data Rate, please do not choose any policies. Then you can
enter the values in the “LAN”, “WLAN”, or “WAN” Out Rates.
Press “Save” to save settings
Reboot your AP.
* If you want to control the traffic flow between MAC addresses in the same interface, please make sure both
MAC addresses are configured for the MAC Traffic Control.
Application Example
Example1: AP Mode Traffic Control
In this example, the AP is installed outdoor to provide Internet service. There are 2 different
type of Internet service offered by the WISP:
z
VIP Service:
„ Upstream Data Rate: 512 Kbps
„ Downstream Data Rate: 1024 Kbps
z
Regular Service:
„ Upstream Data Rate: 64 Kbps
„ Downstream Data Rate: 512 Kbp
The Subscriber’s information is as followed:
„
„
Subscriber A
z VIP Service
z MAC Address of the PC or Wireless Client: 00:04:6F:11:11:11
Subscriber B
z Regular Service
z MAC Address of the PC or Wireless Client: 00:04:6A:88:88:88
Step-by-Step Configuration

4.
Please enable the “MAC Control”
Please fill in the 2 entries as shown on the graphic below
5.
Reboot the AP
Example2: Client Mode Traffic Control
In the following example, the AP is used as the wireless client to the WISP Service. The
Service provider need to restrict the bandwidth of the AP to 1024K Downstream and 128K
Upstream.
