Wi-Fi 6 is the newest standard for Wi-Fi networks – but are devices making full use of its capabilities? We tested a handful of Wi-Fi 6 devices to find out.
Will the 5G standard ensure faster braking with self-driving cars? Explore the results of our real-life test at Excentis.
Latency has a big impact on the user experience. Learn more about what it is and why you should monitor it.
The first step after installing a new network is often to determine its maximum throughput. At the DOCSIS 3.1 interop that we organized a couple of months ago, several participants stayed after to get the highest throughput on their modems. When new lab equipment is delivered to a customer, it's much the same. In this post, I want to give a bit of back story on the throughput test that we've added to the 2.7.0 ByteBlower release. You'll also get a sneak peek at what is coming in the next release.
TCP is an old protocol. Its original RFC dates back from 1981. Over time it has been tweaked and tuned in order to keep up with ever increasing demands. In this post I describe how one small tweak can make a big change in performance when using TCP on a 10Gbit Ethernet link.
Rigorously testing a network device or distributed service requires complex, realistic network test environments. Linux Traffic Control (tc) with Network Emulation (netem) provides the building blocks to create an impairment node that simulates such networks. This final post of a three-part series shows how to set up an impairment node in practice.
