The 802.11 Reference Design and its documentation are under active development by the Mango team. The current release should be considered a beta- updates with bug fixes, API changes, new features and other refinements will be posted frequently. Please check the downloads page for the latest updates and post any questions about the design to the forums.

Throughput Benchmarks

Throughput vs. Payload Length

This test measures the achieved throughput of each PHY rate between two WARP v3 nodes running the 802.11 Reference Design. One node acts as AP, the other as a STA. Traffic is generated locally via the LTG framework; measurements are extracted from the nodes via WARPnet. The nodes' RF interfaces are connected via a coax cable and 50dB attenuation.

The plot below clearly illustrates increasing throughput with higher PHY rates and the decreasing impact of MAC overhead with increasing payload lengths.
