Broadband Forum releases first home Wi-Fi performance testing standard, defining carrier-class premium Wi-Fi experience
Telecom TV – 2019.02.27
‘Broadband Forum, in collaboration with industry partners, has released the industry’s first Wi-Fi performance test standard – the TR-398 Indoor Wi-Fi Performance Test Standard (TR-398) – during Mobile World Congress 2019.
TR-398 is the first standard that systematically and quantitatively evaluates home Wi-Fi device performance across six dimensions: receiver sensitivity, throughput, coverage, multi-user support, anti-interference, and stability. By defining Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), such as the Wi-Fi equivalent bandwidth (throughput), rate at different distances, and throughput for multiple online users, the standard helps telecom operators and end users select optimal Wi-Fi solutions’
