Bandwidth for communication between v-SZ and AP

We have installed a vsz - H in our own network. We want to set up a wireless network at the customers site. The customer has an internet connection with 2 Mbit.

 

How much bandwidth require the AP ́s to communicate with the vsz during normal operation for heartbeat and Guest Pass generation?

AP heartbeat packets are very small, less than 1k in size.  APs send heartbeats to the vSZ every 40s.

Creating/generating a Guest Pass by someone at the site, a one time or infrequent event will not require
much bandwidth, though I can't say I've ever measured the packets.

The connected client Internet traffic is more likely to consume the small 2mb WAN link.

OK, thanks for your answer.

Is it possible to edit the heartbeat intervall time?
