Updating the Socket WAN Interface Bandwidth

Configure the Socket WAN interface bandwidth setting according to the terms of Cato site license. For example, if the site license is for 100Mbps, configure each link (upstream and downstream) as 100Mbps. 

If the Cato site license has a higher bandwidth value than the ISP link bandwidth, set each link’s bandwidth according to the ISP bandwidth. For more about Cato site licenses, see Working with Cato License Types.

Note: For sites with multiple links, follow the procedure below for each link.

To update the Socket WAN interface bandwidth:

  1. From the navigation menu, select Network > Sites, and select the site.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Site Configuration > Socket. 
  3. Select the Socket Interface. 
    The Edit Socket Interface panel opens.
  4. In Bandwidth, enter the new Downstream Mbps and Upstream Mbps values. 
  5. Click Apply, and then click Save.

    Hi Tom,

    What about off-cloud and bypass traffic? If I have a 50 mbit/s license and my line is 100 Mbit/s my off-cloud or bypassed traffic will be limited to 50 Mbit/s = setting from interface bandwidth or it will be full ISP speed?

    If the WAN links combined is set to 200Mbps while the site license is set to 100Mbps. How does Cato deal with excessive traffic over the tunnel?

    Hello Adam!

    First of all, my apologies that we are only responding your question now. 

    Bandwidth is measured per site for data flowing through the Cato Cloud, so the maximum bandwidth should not affect your off-cloud/bypassed traffic.  Have you noticed something different?

    Kind Regards,

    Hello Said!

    My apologies for the delay in responding to your question.  In accordance with Cato's Master Service Agreement, bandwidth is granted on a per site basis.  If the site attempts to exceed the contracted bandwidth level, the site will not receive this extra bandwidth. 

    Please let me know if this answers your question sufficiently!

    Kind Regards,

    Dermot Doran (Cato Networks Community Manager).
