Rate limiting each client increases the amount of time needed to complete data transfer (assuming the air-interface is not the bottleneck). Unless a scheduling method such as air-time fairness is used (where clients with good link quality are given a slight advantage), the result will be increased contention for the channel and more rapidly diminishing performance as the number of concurrent users increases. A "hog" will want to consume a lot of data whether rate-limited or not. How then does Ruckus recommend reducing the amount of time that hog is contending for channel access?
