In the case where your IPtv Set Top Boxes are connected thru a LAN Ethernet port,
you want to tell the AP not to listen/answer (snoop) your multicast IGMP client traffic,
and it should be faster and follow the TV channel changes. I don't know which of your
H500 ports your STBs connect to, but here is syntax you can use if you SSH into your
APs. You want to disable igmp snooping, and directed-multicast (use straight UDP),
and can assume version compatibility.
You can SSH into an AP CLI using putty application and run the following commands.
set qos igmp [enable|disable]
-- Sets the state of IGMP Snooping for the specified interface
set qos directed multicast [enable|disable]
-- Sets the state of egress packet processing for the specified interface
set qos igmp_query [v2|v3] [enable|disable]
-- Sets IGMP General Query version for IGMP General Query Mechanism
ifname : interface name can be wlan0 / eth1 / eth2.
Use the "get eth" command to determine which eth0, eth1, eth2 of your H500 has the STB
then issue these two commands:
set qos ethX igmp disable
set qos ethX directed multicast disable
If you manage your H500s by a ZoneDirector, you can apply commands remotely. These
will affect ALL connected APs however, so ok if all H500s and if the EthX port they're using
don't exist on the other models, ie Eth3 or Eth4.
You would SSH to your ZoneDirector, and then issue these AP commands.
ruckus(debug)# remote_ap_cli -A "set qos ethX directed mutlicast disable"
ruckus(debug)# remote_ap_cli -A "set qos ethX igmp disable"
( where EthX is the LAN port your H500's have STBs connected to)
Good luck and please let us know your test results.
