Webinar: Five things to know about WLAN 802.11ax and why testing is more important than ever before

Rohde & Schwarz webinar from May 4, 2017

Wireless connectivity, which has been successfully implemented all over the world, has gone through some tremendous evolutionary steps. Legacy WLANs have introduced physical layer functionality such as wider bandwidth, MIMO and higher-order modulation schemes, achieving higher throughput. To tackle the challenges of crowded networks, the upcoming new standard IEEE 802.11ax will now focus on increasing overall efficiency.

To make the evolution of WLAN understandable, this webinar will present the technological aspects in moving forward from 802.11ac to 802.11ax, current challenges and the resulting motivation to increase efficiency. To ensure the success of future WLAN 11ax devices and services, it is obvious that tests must be conducted to verify interworking.

The T&M experts will explain the challenges that are encountered when performing RF measurements such as modulation quality analysis, spectrum verification, Tx power and receiver sensitivity, covering the entire lifecycle of a device, from R&D to production to conformance testing.

Attendees will learn:

  • How WLAN 11ax is going to improve the efficiency of the frequency spectrum
  • The technological details of IEEE 802.11ax
  • The importance of RF testing for ensuring the long-term success of this wireless connectivity
  • The challenges involved in RF testing
  • Insights into the testing application range from R&D to production
