Hi Everyone,

I'm just curious to know how big of Internet pipe your organization has for your wireless network (5000 users and above) and is it dedicated to strictly wireless or is it combined with your production employee network? Also, how do you shape your traffic, is it a per user, per group, "penalty box" type of scenario when people exceed daily limits? Do you shape all Internet traffic or just http, YouTube, P2P? I know its kind of a broad question but I'm interested in what other places are doing.

Thanks and have a great day.

Craig.

At Guelph, we have 2G commercial internet and 1G to R&E networks. The peak number of on line wireless clients on campus is around 8,000. We have a cap for overall P2P at the network border towards 2G commercial ISPs, for wireless clients specifically, we've deployed Cisco NAC at in-band mode for authentication and posture assessment, the cap for individual wireless client is 5M. The peak wireless downstream traffic (from Internet to campus) is around 600M.

We have 1.5G for the entire network (wired and wireless) and we do not shape user traffic. The only bandwidth restrictions we have in place are for guest users on wireless.
 
We do track usage and notify users if they consume an excessive amount of bandwidth in a short time.

We do not have a separate pipe for wireless traffic. Wireless accounts for ~55-60% of the overall Internet usage for our campus. We track consumption per user and have an automatic "penalty box" type system when they exceed their weekly allocation (greatly rate-limited Internet traffic, but on-campus is not affected). Users are automatically restored to full service at the end of the week. We have approximately 60,000 wireless users (which is still short of the total population on our campus) and over 120,000 distinct authenticated wireless devices on our network (many users have multiple devices). We see peaks of over 40,000 concurrent devices and average 30,000-35,000 concurrent wireless devices online throughout the middle hours of the day (10a-4p). This only includes users/devices that have logged onto our network using University credentials (random passerby associations are not counted).
