WLAN 802.11ac Test and Design
WLAN technology 802.11ac, builds on 802.11n with a wider RF bandwidth (up to 160 MHz), MIMO and high density 256QAM modulation. The end result is that WLAN 802.11ac provides high throughput of 1 Gbps below 6 GHz for multiple stations. Building on 802.11ac is the new 802.11ax standard with draft specification available January 2016. It is predicted to have a top speed of 10 Gbit/s. To achieve this, there is investigation into all the technologies including OFDM, OFDMA, MU-MIMO, higher order modulation and Overlapping Basic Service Sets (OBSS) interference handling.
Keysight’s 802.11 software allows engineers to simulate, view and troubleshoot all 802.11 modulation formats, from BPSK up to 256QAM, implemented in components and receivers. For even greater flexibility, the software supports all signal bandwidths, including 20, 40, 80 and 160 MHz, and up to 8x8 MIMO. Using the 89600B VSA 802.11 software, engineers gain greater insight into their next-generation 802.11 WLAN chips and devices, regardless of the 802.11 format implemented.
