Edgewater commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate its EAP3000 multi-channel, wireless chipset’s aggregate 802.11b/g throughput in a reference platform against three commercially available, single-channel enterprise-class 802.11g access points.

Eight different throughput test client mode/association speed combinations were used to verify that performance differences are consistent across an array of connection types. To minimize the impact of RF anomalies and environmental noise, encourage repeatability, and focus on optimal throughput, engineers connected wireless LAN clients to each access point tested over a wired RF link. Attenuation was introduced to some or all of the clients to reflect real-world conditions. Multiple permutations of the tests were run, each having a different set of standard and association rates for the clients.

Results show that the AP based on multi-channel Edgewater technology delivers consistently higher performance than any of the three commercially-available single-channel APs tested.
