Description (partial)

WLC series 7500/8500 reports interface type as gigbit rather than ten gig.
As per the RFC: "An estimate of the interface's current bandwidth in bits per second.  For interfaces which do not vary in bandwidth or for those where no accurate estimation can be made, this object should contain the nominal bandwidth.  If the bandwidth of the interface is greater than the maximum value reportable by this object then this object should report its maximum value (4,294,967,295) and ifHighSpeed must be used to report the interface's speed.  For a sub-layer which has no concept of bandwidth, this object should be zero."

So the WLC should return 4,294,967,295 and not 100000000 which is what is currently returned.

The issue is observed with SNMP query of interface type
