DS Spirent TestCenter WLAN Wave-2 MX2 DFS Test Module_RevD.indd
Spirent TestCenter supports the highest performing and most realistic wireless local area network (WLAN) multi-client emulation for direct functionality and performance testing of Access Points (APs) and end-to- end testing of WLAN ecosystems that include WLAN access controllers, and gateways. Spirent TestCenter WLAN MX2 test module has an integration of the latest 802.11ac Wave-2 support and radar signal emulation interface for Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) testing. With this test module installed into a Spirent TestCenter chassis in conjunction with other test modules, users can emulate a large number of realistic 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WLAN clients to connect with an access point via a cabled conductive or over- the-air (OTA) link for either WLAN functional or data traffic performance testing. Basic WLAN control plane and data plane features along with the advanced RFC style network traffic and throughput performance test cases are supported over the WALN network involving the emulated clients and the APs under test.
The MX2 WLAN DFS test module offers the highest performance and consists of multiple IEEE 802.11 radios. It provides the maximum user configurability and flexibility to emulate various IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac clients on 2.4GHz and 5GHz and IEEE 802.11ac Wave-2 MU-MIMO clients on 5GHz band. A single WLAN radio supports 802.11ac Wave-2 clients with different spatial streams for the best realistic client emulation scenarios in either SU-MIMO or MU-MIMO. Designed for testing WLAN network infrastructure devices, including carrier or enterprise thin APs with controllers, consumer APs, and integrated broadband WLAN gateway, Spirent TestCenter WLAN solutions offer the best in class traffic generation and analysis for testing functionality, performance, and scalability.
