RFC 2544 contains a specific set of benchmark tests built around the widely supported RFC 2544 industry specification that can be used to evaluate network interconnecting device performance. This automation package is comprised of 4 tests: Throughput, Latency, Frame Loss Rate, and Back-to-back frames.
Four basic tests iterating frame sizes; 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 1280, 1518 for uplink and downlink. Multiple station traffic groups for all test cases with offered load adjustment calculated to limit frame loss.
Throughput (Most popular test)
Mesh AP Systems are becoming an increasingly popular solution to deliver broadband internet throughout a home or an office. Currently, there is no standard yet that covers this space. Spirent has taken the lead and created a specific Mesh automation package to address a unique set of test cases to describe the performance of a Mesh system.
The Mesh Automation Packages characterizes the mesh in terms of the level of service that it delivers to the end user. The automation package simulates real, recorded homes in the lab. The testing is performed using a black box testing principle: no assumptions are taking how the mesh operates.
