Spirent TestCenter: TX MCS Values with 2SS are NOT achieving MCS11 in 80 MHz - CBW with Upstream traffic

Symptoms

When we are testing upstream traffic with 80 MHz - Channel BandWidth and 2 SS we are observing that Tx MCS values are never coming up with MCS11 (1024-QAM 5/6)
On other other hand if we are testing the same thing with 4SS then we are seeing MCS 11 consistently.

Workaround:
  • Fill the payload fill type as "PRBS" 
  • Use other constant patterns other than 0s in the traffic field
    • Then after that we have seen we are getting MCS11 in 2SS also.
