Wireless LAN emulation.
The WaveTest Traffic Generator/Analyzer is a wireless LAN and
Ethernet performance test platform, capable of stress testing a complete
WLAN network, including access points and WLAN switches. Designed for
enterprise users that want to make the right choice when selecting WLAN
equipment for deployment in their networks, the solution provides
simultaneous generation of traffic from thousands of 802.11 and Ethernet
clients, with line-speed analysis of the behavior of the system being
tested. The WaveTest 90 chassis contains up to nine
WaveBlades--independent traffic generators/performance analyzers.
WaveBlade WiFi supports IEEE 802.11 a/b/g client emulation, while
WaveBlade Ethernet supports IEEE 802.3 client emulation. Each WaveBlade
card emulates up to 500 WLAN or 1,000 Ethernet clients across single or
multiple subnets. Larger network scale can be achieved by daisy-chaining
up to six WaveTest 90 chassis for a total of 27,000 emulated
