N4010A WLAN IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n Video Series

N4010A Videos

N4010A IEEE 802.11a/b/g & n WLAN Video Series

The following videos demonstrate the N4010A Wireless Connectivity Test Set for IEEE 802.11a/b/g and n WLAN testing. The videos are divided into 3 categories:

  • N4010A IEEE 802.11a/b/g Test in the WLAN Virtual Front Panel
  • N4010A/N4011A IEEE 802.11n Test in the WLAN Virtual Front Panel
  • N4010A Programming for Automated WLAN Manufacturing Test

The first 2 topics cover the N4010A WLAN Virtual Front Panel, a benchtop testing tool for WLAN test. The programming videos describe and demonstrate the use of the N4010A WLAN Driver (DLL) for integration into a programming environment.

The videos serve as useful training tools and demonstrators for the N4010A, N4011A, N4010A WLAN Virtual Front Panel and the N4010A WLAN Driver (DLL). Starting with legacy WLAN test (IEEE 802.11a/b/g), the videos follow a logical structure, introducing the basics of test before leading towards more complex measurements. The IEEE 802.11n videos introduce alternative hardware and RF setup with the N4011A MIMO/Multi-port Adaptor being used alongside the N4010A. Finally, the N4010A WLAN Driver (DLL) is used to automate manual tests for those wishing to understand the basics of automated manufacturing test for production.
