Key Considerations for Wi-Fi 6 Multi-User OFDMA Testing
Learn how to validate 802.11 WLAN AP and device performance, ensure network security, maximize service coverage.
Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing Access (OFDMA) introduced in Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) is one of the most important features in this generation of Wi-Fi technology. However, testing Wi-Fi 6 OFDMA can be a challenging task due to the complex nature of features defined in 802.11ax standard.
This white paper provides an overview of 802.11ax, OFDMA triggering mechanisms, info exchange protocol, and MU PPDU transmission. It also offers an in-depth look at the essentials for OFDMA testing with a special focus on OFDMA operational scenarios. The latest industry-leading solutions will be shared for testing Wi-Fi 6 enhancements in a controlled environment and creating realistic, meaningful traffic models for OFDMA use cases.
