Pepwave MAX-BR1 running 6.2.2 build 1790
I have “individual bandwidth limit” set to 500K up and down and have set QOS/application so voip is high, tunneling is high all other normal
Behind the pepwave are five IP phones and a sonicwall. The phones connect over pepvpn to our data centers. The sonicwall has a point of sale system and guest wi-fi turned on.
The sonicwall is consistantly using 800K to 1300K uplink. How is this possible when individual limit set to 500K?
And why is application QOS not protecting voip?
So - is anyone else seeing this problem? Does QOS actually work in this firmware?
Should I try the beta firmware?
I am going to run into this in many locations. The two reasons for installing the pepwave are cellular backup and being able to provide QOS and protect bandwidth for voip, as I do not control the customer’s sonicwall.
I am pondering an enhancement request to be able to actually reserve some uplink bandwidth for the VPN connection. That might make more sense than just nebulous classifications in the application control. Since the actual ISP connection may be anything from a 3M down/1M up DSL to a 25M down/6M up or faster, it makes more sense to say “reserve 500K for the VPN” than setting a limit on other devices.
Anyone else want to chime in on this?
