Set WiFi Speed Limits

UniFi offers numerous traffic shaping options to maximize control over your network.

Traffic Rules

In addition to speed limiting, Traffic Rules provide full next-generation firewall capabilities. They can be configured to apply to any client, network, or even specific applications. Traffic Rules can:

  • Block specific apps, domains, and regions to control network usage and prioritize important traffic.
  • Add a schedule to customize when traffic is blocked, ensuring bandwidth is available when needed most.
  • Limit bandwidth for specific applications or devices to prevent them from consuming excessive network resources.
