Advances in Wireless Infrastructure Control: Optimizing Client Behavior for Improved Network Performance
Source: Farpoint Group
Not a formal benchmarking exercise but it's rather a general test of advanced wireless infrastructure control capabilities. It was impressed at how far it has come in the ability of wireless LANs (properly equipped. of course) to handle large numbers of users with time-critical traffic. It concluded that, while it is indeed very difficult to manage Wi-Fi at the RF level, real benefits can be gained from Wireless Infrastructure Control based on the automated adjustment of key parameters in response to real-world radio and traffic conditions And this testing was especially valuable in that high-density environments have always been challenging because the close placement of APs and densely-located clients represent a worst-case scenario.
