Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless LAN products based on the IEEE 802.11 standards are very popular across home and enterprise markets globally. The certification programmed conducted by the Wi-Fi alliance is expensive and focuses on the interoperability issues. It also uses proprietary tools for accomplishing the same. In this paper, the authors propose a framework for the comprehensive evaluation of 802.11 based products using free and open-source tools. The evaluation comprises of rigorous conformance, performance, and interoperability issues. IEEE 802.11 is a set of protocols which describe the characteristics of operation of a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).
