In-depth video seminars presented by our Wi-Fi experts.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 1: RvR under LOS/NLOS conditions
This Wi-Fi tutorial explains how real-life conditions are emulated by the IEEE 802.11 standard channel models. We will show a live demo of a Wi-Fi 6 rate vs. range (RvR) test running in the LOS and NLOS conditions.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 2: RvR with rotation
This tutorial discusses common sources of error in Wi-Fi throughput measurements and ways to the use a turntable to achieve repeatable results. We also discuss measurements vs. device orientation.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 3: OFDMA Deep Dive
In this Wi-Fi tutorial we explain how OFDM and OFDMA work and examine specific challenges of OFDMA.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 4: synchroSniffer
This Wi-Fi tutorial shows why multiple synchronized sniffer probes are required for OFDMA, roaming, band steering, mesh and system level testing.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 5: RF link budget
Our focus for this Wi-Fi tutorial is RF environment fundamentals and a demonstration of how to estimate the RF link budget for any test scenario.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 6: TR-398
For this tutorial, Leigh Chinitz provides an overview of the Broadband Forum TR-398 standard for testing Wi-Fi performance.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 7: Antennas
This Wi-Fi tutorial takes a deep dive into the fundamentals of antenna physics and the methodology of achieving optimum MIMO and MU-MIMO performance in a wireless testbed.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 8: Testbed testing vs test house testing
In this Wi-Fi tutorial we take a look at the similarities and differences between testing in a testbed vs in a test house.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 9: IETF RFC 2544 and IEEE 802.11.2 for Wi-Fi testing
Our topic for this Wi-Fi tutorial is IETF RFC 2544 that is sometimes recommended for testing Wi-Fi routers.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 10: Wi-Fi Mesh
The focus of this Wi-Fi tutorial is mesh Wi-Fi. We look at the origins of the technology as well as its evolution to date.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 11: Wi-Fi Mesh, part 2
In this Wi-Fi tutorial, we continue our analysis of mesh Wi-Fi. We look at various mesh topologies and the impact of an increasing number of wireless hops to the throughput as well as the latency of a connection.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 12: Target Wake Time in Wi-Fi 6
Our topic for this Wi-Fi tutorial is the Target Wake Time (TWT) and how it enables devices to determine when and how frequently they wake up to send or receive data.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 13: Band steering, airtime fairness and lies damn lies
In this Wi-Fi tutorial, we look into the theory and practice of band steering and airtime fairness as techniques to deliver high aggregate throughput in consumer routers.
Wi-Fi Tutorial Lesson 14: Principles of traffic generation for Wi-Fi test
In this tutorial we focus on traffic generation in Wi-Fi measurements. We review common use cases that traffic generators need to cover as well as what capabilities to look for. We also show demos using Spirent's new software, OCTOBOX software 2.0.
