Wi-Fi 6E Testing with LANforge

Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard. It allows an unlicensed 6 GHz frequency band to be used. Wi-Fi 6E extends all the Wi-Fi 6 features and capabilities into the 6GHz band to allow greater efficiency, higher throughput, and increased security. With Wi-Fi 6E, a total of 1200MHz spectrum is available. This allows more capacity, wider channels, and less interference. Wi-Fi 6E devices operating on the 6GHz band have access to:

(Wi-Fi 6E may be abbreviated as 6E below.)

Below image represents the 6E testcases that we covered using our LANforge.

Block Diagram

This testbed uses 36 AX210 tri-band 2.4/5/6E radios for testing. The test setup, testbed components, and environment are all created as per our requirements.

Some of the components may be different than pictured depending on the options purchased. Please ask your sales representative for details.

Wi-Fi 6E Sample Charts

Lead Times

Most LANforge systems can generally be shipped within 2-3 weeks of customer PO. RF chambers and attenuators may need 6-8 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.
