SUMMARY REMARKS & TESTBEDS
The purpose of this experiment is to evaluate in-depth the emerging Wi-Fi HaLow technology and to provide a comprehensive report on the capabilities and features of Wi-Fi HaLow. Wi-Fi HaLow™ is a new Wi-Fi technology for IoT. It is based on the IEEE 802.11ah standard, it operates in the Sub-GHz ISM band (750-950MHz) and contains several new MAC and PHY concepts to address the weaknesses of Wi-Fi for (industrial) IoT and machine-to-machine communication while at the same time maintaining all the benefits of the world-wide Wi-Fi ecosystem.
During this experiment Methods2Business will focus on evaluating the performance of Wi-Fi HaLow networks (throughput and latency) under various conditions, the effect of new features introduced by IEEE802.11ah standard, validation of Methods2Business algorithms for network operations and validation of Methods2Business automated protocol checker. Methods2Business will execute the experiments using their Wi-Fi HaLow implementations for stations and access points mapped on Zynq ZC706 with FMCOMM2 platform.
