The Wi-Fi® 6 Revolution Is a Wakeup Call for Your Test Strategy
IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) intends
to improve the WLAN system efficiency, focusing on the throughput per station in
dense and outdoor environments. Wi-Fi 6 allows for the first time the scheduled
communication of several stations (STA) at the same time, to and from the access
point (AP) by introduction of OFDMA. It enables several stations to serve simultaneously
in order to improve overall capacity, latency and efficiency in high-density environments.
Resource units (RU) are introduced to split the available spectrum in smaller parts.
A scheduling procedure ensures synchronized uplink communication in OFDMA and MU-MIMO
schemes. With many new features, there will be an impact on testing. This white
paper will give insight on the upcoming Wi-Fi 6 standard and explain, in detail
new test requirements and solutions.
