5Ghz iperf testing

One of the most difficult topics to tackle is correlating performance with WiFi statistics.

The easiest way to learn or get a grasp of your RF/WiFi environment is to measure its performance.

For example, to surf, download and check your email, run a default iperf test to determine your throughput. For audio calls, video calls, remote desktop, citrix or streaming, you should consider iperf UDP tests to record your jitter and packet loss.

It is important to see if wireless devices stay connected to access points that are not the closest, or have the best signal quality. In other words, do they hang on to their access point when there are better options?

In this video I show you how to start a simple survey using iperf and encourage you to do the same in your environment.
