Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet) recently conducted independent Wi-Fi performance testing, showcasing the world’s top 802.11ac and 802.11n access points (APs) within a real world high-capacity, high interference classroom environment. Using industry standard test tools, 19 APs were stressed within several progressive testing scenarios that included 12, 23, 36, and 60 clients, increasing number of clients for each throughput test. Maximum aggregate TCP throughput to a mix of 802.11ac and 802.11n clients that included one- two- three-stream mobile and laptop devices. Each test was run three times with the highest result recorded. Vendors were invited to actively participate in the testing with the latest publicly available code for the device under test (DUT) and the option to choose their own channels and channel width for testing, with no encryption required. The results of the exhaustive testing found that Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi APs consistently outperformed all DUTs, taking top marks in almost every test scenario.
