TR-398 WiFi Testing with LANforge

TR-398 Issue 3 available.

Candela Technologies has TR-398 Issue 3 support in LANforge 5.4.6 and higher.

The TR-398 WiFi Performance test plan by the Broadband forum provides a comprehensive set of tests to qualify the performance of WiFi access points (APs) to be deployed in residential and small office indoor environments. Radio performance, throughput, connection stability, airtime fairness and long-term stability are some of the test areas covered in this test plan. The test plan is designed for service providers deploying in home WiFi APs to qualify the APs in the lab before deployment and for equipment makers to test during the development of the APs.

Lead Times: Most LANforge systems can generally be shipped within a couple of days of customer PO. RF chambers and attenuators may need 2 or more weeks of lead time. Direct-from-the-factory shipping is available for the RF chambers to decrease shipping costs and lead times.

TaaS/Onsite Support:Customers with only occasional test needs can use our Test as a Service option. Candela engineers can do the testing for you in our fully equipped test lab and provide a detailed test report with recommendations.
