What factors contribute most to improving WiFi performance? Is it signal quality, wireless technology, number of radios, spacial streams, device capability, or something else? In this session we present simulated and real-world testing of different factors that affect WiFi throughput. Explanations of the different performance factors will be explained during the presentation. The goal is to reaffirm your suspicions with hard evidence, teach you something you didn’t know about how WiFi performance works, and give you solid evidence on how to improve WiFi performance from a device level to a network level. While this is not an exhaustive list of all factors, many important factors will be included. This presentation is geared to anyone interested in WiFi, both network engineers and support technicians. It is highly technical, but explanations will be given throughout.
