The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) is expanding its Wi-Fi testing capabilities in alignment with the Broadband Forum’s WT-398 test plan, a set of performance metrics for Wi-Fi in different scenarios that allows providers to benchmark Wi-Fi Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to ensure it meets user expectations. The Broadband Forum WT-398 test plan represents the first time that the industry has truly agreed to performance testing for Wi-Fi systems and provides service providers with a tool set to compare and qualify equipment for their networks. UNH-IOL will be holding an educational webinar on 31 May 2018 at 11:00 AM EST highlighting the importance of testing to WT-398 metrics.
Testing specs covered in the webinar include:
- Key testing topics covered within the WT-398 testing
- Implementation of testing, common mistakes, and how to avoid them
- Gaps being covered by other Wi-Fi testing under development by the UNH-IOL
