How to prevent multicast stream causing wireless performance dropped?

Scenario

The multicast traffic may cause the wireless performance drop when user uses the LAN port on AP or wireless connection to provide internet for stream service client. For the end-user or small topology where vlan can't be deployed, how to prevent multicast stream causing wireless performance drop?

Step

Connect a stream service client to AP's SSID or LAN port.

Start sending multicast in the same subnet.

Connect a device to AP's SSID and use the internet.

Wireless performance is worse than normal situation.

 

 

 

Verification

Nebula provides NAT mode for small topology to remap the IP range.

In this case, we'll suggest user to enable NAT mode on the SSID to let wireless clients use independently subnet.

With this, wireless network is isolated and won't be affect by multicast.
