TR-398 Issue 3 WiFi Testing
May 27, 2023 – Good performance of WiFi networks are necessary for the proper functioning of the applications and the communication networks of the users/clients.
There are two basic approaches to measure the quality of WiFi networks, through passive measurements and active measurements.
The use of passive measures, mainly through coverage studies, has been shown to be insufficient to verify the quality of WiFi services. It is true that at least it allows us to know if the WiFi signal will reach a certain area of the office or home, but it does not guarantee that the WiFi terminals/equipment have good functional behavior or adequate performances. The reason is that not all WiFi devices are the same, right?
