In early 2018, The DFS Project was born out of a conversation around the Wi-Fi industry’s need to validate DFS functionality in the field. After over a year of research, testing, and on-going discussions, the WifiMETRIX2 was born. Now you can create picture-perfect DFS events in the field, exactly as the regulatory bodies test the APs in a lab.
While validation of DFS functionality is the primary goal of the new DFS feature set in the WifiMETRIX2, the same features can be used for other purposes (hint: automatic channel/power testing and DFS event sensitivity testing). Just because a vendor sends their AP through DFS testing (and receives a certification from the regulatory body) at one point in time does not mean that an AP will maintain the same level of DFS event recognition throughout its life because firmware and software change the AP’s functionality over time. Finally, the industry has a diagnostics platform that can fill the DFS testing gap and provide visibility into previously unexplored and unvalidated AP functionality.
Well done Nuts About Nets!
