UNH-IOL testing to address performance metrics for WiFi

The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, has announced it is expanding its WiFi testing capabilities in alignment with the Broadband Forum´s WT-398 test plan, a set of performance metrics for WiFi in different scenarios that allows providers to benchmark WiFi Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) to ensure it meets user expectations, the company said.

The Broadband Forum WT-398 test plan represents the first time industry has truly agreed to performance testing for WiFi systems and provides service providers with a tool set to compare and qualify equipment for their networks. The UNH-IOL will be holding an educational webinar on 31 May 2018 at 11:00 AM EDT highlighting the importance of testing to WT-398 metrics.

Founded in 1988, the UNH-IOL provides independent, broad-based interoperability and standards conformance testing for data, telecommunications and storage networking products and technologies.
