When talking about throughput, all sorts of numbers get tossed around. However, it is crucial to clarify what data you are talking about when demonstrating and comparing values. What’s included, and what’s not?
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.
ByteBlower exists 10 years! Well, actually even a little longer...
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.
Boost network speed beyond 1Gbps without expensive cable upgrades? You can! Check out the whys and hows of the new 802.3bz (NBASE-T) Ethernet standard.
Latency has a big impact on the user experience. Learn more about what it is and why you should monitor it.
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.
This blog post shows how to use the Dashing framework to build custom web-based dashboards to monitor the progress of ByteBlower traffic tests. With real-time graphs and gauges you can keep an eye on what's happening during your tests, regardless if you're running them from one or more test scripts or ByteBlower GUI instances.
Since 2015, Excentis has been inviting the world’s leading network equipment vendors to its headquarters once a year to test their DOCSIS® 3.1 products and demonstrate interoperability with other equipment. More than offering vendors a unique chance to test in a high-tech, vendor-neutral...
With Low Latency DOCSIS a hot topic, the Excentis team explored the effects of introducing latency to a Remote PHY setup. Find out what we learned.
