How to tell how much of the allocated wireless bandwidth a user actually uses
Right now the fastest speed everyone receives is around 144 mbps. I could change the band over from 20 mhz to 40 which should double the pipe but i want to know if its even necessary. When I look at my laptops stats from within the controller this is what I am seeing as far as received and transferred bytes.
This means Im not even touching a mg on the receiving end. Is this logic accurate in stating based on this information we dont need more than 144 mhz? is there another way to tell?
Re: How to tell how much of the allocated wireless bandwidth a user actually uses
You have to remember that data rates are not throughput.
Wireless is a shared medium and half duplex in nature. Each device has requires clear channel before it can transmit, and each frame will be acknowledged (or block ack).
It then comes down to what the client is connecting at based on its number of spacial streams, RSSI and SNR to what data rate it can connect at.
Whilst increasing the channel bandwidth with 40 MHz (do not do this on 2.4GHz networks) gives you a bigger pipe, it will reduce the number of non overlapping channels, which in a high density environment (or even a multi tenanted building) could cause co-channel interference and adversely affect the performance of the wireless devices.
