14 Trilogy 3.5 AP Webinar Copyright © 2001 by Symbol Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Purpose: To observe maximum throughput achieved during continuous 100KB file transfers to and from a wired computer to a MU. Environment: No RF Interference, some multipath, private wired network Results: The table below lists the average throughput of continuous (for 5 minutes) Gets (wired -> wireless) and Puts (wireless -> wired). The average of the Gets and Puts is taken as the effective throughput. Raw Throughput Comparison Get (Mbps) Put (Mbps) Average (Mbps) Symbol T Cisco Symbol T

22 Trilogy 3.5 AP Webinar Copyright © 2001 by Symbol Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. WLAN systems are data centric supporting low data rate applications (e.g., scan-send-beep, etc.) With multimedia applications (voice, video, audio) proliferating, proactively managing the scarce wireless bandwidth is critical The Intelligent Access Point (IAP) includes:  Packet Engine (PE)- Classifies data streams based on media type. Current support provides voice, video and data classes  Quality of Service (QoS) Manager- Prioritizes and Optimally schedules classified data streams based on policies set by system administrators according to their organizations needs The technology can be extended in the future to support additional security management (firewall protection, content filtering), and accounting/billing (for different services) Wireless QOS Enhanced Interference Avoidance Properties

24 Trilogy 3.5 AP Webinar Copyright © 2001 by Symbol Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Adaptive Interference Processing  Adaptable Rate Switching Algorithm  Optimizes b Throughput in Bluetooth Environment.  Uses Statistical Analysis in the AP to Predict Bluetooth Traffic/Interference  Provides Dramatic Throughput Improvement I am Bluetooth! Hear Me SHOUT…

25 Trilogy 3.5 AP Webinar Copyright © 2001 by Symbol Technologies, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Downstream Traffic is Most Susceptible Conventional rate scaling algorithms might scale back all the way to 1 Mbps and stay there (scaling back results in increased collisions) Need for a mechanism that predicts when Bluetooth is around and “lock” the transmission rate at the best possible point S24/AP MU FTP Bluetooth FTP How It Works
