Wi-Fi-enabled electronic devices can transmit data using both 5GHz and 2.4GHz frequencies. The frequency band depends on the range (coverage) and the required bandwidth (speed). A larger coverage range is achieved with 2.4GHz with reduced internet speed, while 5GHz has faster speeds but the coverage area is restricted. However, using 5GHz Wi-Fi helps cut through network clutter disturbance and interference for maximized network performance with more channels for communication.
Many electronic products use Wi-Fi for connectivity, reception, and communication. Safety and optimal performance are critical factors for a Wi-Fi-enabled product’s marketability. Testing to meet regulatory standards and evaluating a product’s performance under real-world test cases proves the device’s reliability while achieving compliance.
VPI offers a range of interoperability tests for Wi-Fi-enabled products including RF testing, DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) / TPC (Transmit Power Control) testing, flat channel testing, and multipath testing. Contact us for your 5GHz & 2.4GHz Wi-Fi testing needs.
