3 doc.: IEEE /1140r0 SubmissionHarish Ramamurthy, Marvell Semiconductor Inc.Slide 3 Test Setup Anechoic shielded room used Separation of WLAN devices is 3m due to test facility constraints 11g performance not measured due to time constraints Laptop is the primary n transmitter n Setup –Throughput test using IxChariot –Aggregation ON and video priority used to maximize medium utilization

4 doc.: IEEE /1140r0 SubmissionHarish Ramamurthy, Marvell Semiconductor Inc.Slide 4 BT Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) Definitions AFH off –All 79 MHz channels are used and none of the channels are blocked AFH on: Two types of AFH used –Manual AFH –Manually remove or blacklist channels that get affected by and some margin at the edges. –For e.g. when using 40 MHz with 2, 6 channel, block all lower channels (except for first four) and enable all higher channels (top twenty seven) –Regular AFH Present results with both regular and manual AFH

Results are presented for limited number of scenarios Note –“blips”: minor interruption in audio of duration <2 second –“dropouts”: major interruption in audio of duration >= 2seconds

21 doc.: IEEE /1140r0 SubmissionHarish Ramamurthy, Marvell Semiconductor Inc.Slide 21 Discussion: Qualitative Test Results SCO –No tests were done with manual AFH –With regular AFH enabled, the audio went from unacceptable to near perfect A2DP –With regular AFH With distance between BT Tx and Tx equal to 0.5 m, audio quality for both 20 MHz and 40 MHz was unacceptable With distance increased to 1.5 m, audio quality improved significantly for both 20 MHz and 40 MHz Note: The headset remained 0.5 m away from n Tx. This still emulates a user working on a laptop while listening to music and amounts to moving the BT tx (stereo) away by 1m –With manual AFH Audio quality is good in both 20 MHz and 40 MHz
