Testing your throughput with wireless link test

ePMP has a useful wireless link test feature that lets you measure the uplink and downlink capacity from the SM to the AP, and from the AP to any connected SM you choose.

Multiple frame sizes and test durations can be selected, so you can see the capacity for applications generating small packets (VoIP) and large packets (file downloads) as well as in between.

For the most accurate wireless link test results, make sure no or very little customer data traffic is being sent for the duration of the test. Here’s the results from a wireless link test from my AP sent to my chosen SM, showing a healthy 84.7Mbps downlink and 9.2Mbps uplink, giving an aggregate of 93.9Mbps.
