Laboratory Performance of Wi-Fi WEP Point-to-Point Links: A Case Study
Source: Universidade da Beira Interior
Wireless communications using microwaves are increasingly important, e.g. Wi-Fi. Performance is a very relevant issue, resulting in more reliable and efficient communications. Laboratory measurements are made about several performance aspects of Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11a, g) WEP point-to-point links using available access points from Enterasys Networks (RBT-4102). Through OSI levels 4 and 7, detailed results are presented and discussed from TCP, UDP and FTP experiments, namely: TCP throughput, jitter, percentage datagram loss and FTP transfer rate.
