How to set up Peplink QoS, and what is its capability?


QoS is used to allocate bandwidth and prioritize applications to individuals and to groups of users.

User Groups

On select models, you can define user groups by IP and subnet. Bandwidth controls and application priority can then be applied according to user groups.

By Bandwidth

Bandwidth reservation per user group under full load
Defines how much minimum bandwidth will be reserved to each user group when a WAN connection is in full load.

Per user group bandwidth control
Gives fine-grained control over download and upload rate limits to groups of users.

By Applications and Protocols

QoS recognizes certain application protocols, for example, in the Audio Video Streaming category, there is:

It is possible to pick entire categories such as “All Supported Streaming Applications”, or pick a certain Application within the category, such as HTML5 only.

Then adjust the priority for each user group:

For applications that do not belong to a particular category, it is possible to define a custom application, its protocol and ranges (i.e. TCP 2-22) or assign DSCP values.

Remember to click Save and Apply Changes.
