Computers, smart phones, and IoT devices are an indispensable part of our lives. But in order for the devices to deliver their fullest performance, stable Wi-Fi connections are needed. TR-398 is launched specifically to test the performance of Wi-Fi routers. In this article we are going to test some of the notable brands in the market and see how well they perform when being tested with the TR-398 approach.
Routers on the market, which one is the best?
- Maximum Connection Test
2. Maximum Throughput Test
3. Airtime Fairness Test – 5GHz
4. Range versus Rate Test
5. Spatial Consistency Test
6. Multiple Association/Disassociation Stability Test Result
7. Stability Robustness Test
8. AP Coexistence Test
We can derive from the test results that the 5 routers scored below average for each performance test. Since TR-398 is a relatively new standard, routers on the market may not have been designed or calibrated based on the TR-398 standard yet. But with the release of TR-398, we believe more vendors and manufacturers will start to strive for better performance and mitigate potential issues.
