Allion’s Wireless Equipment for TR-398 (AWE TR-398)

AWE TR-398 is designed for Wireless Access Point/Router ODMs and telecom service providers to validate their products with Broadband Forum’s TR-398 performance test cases.


AWE TR-398 performs tests according to the Broadband Forum TR-398 Issue 2. AWE TR-398 verifies network equipment using 32 real client devices that are capable of Wi-Fi 6GHz operation, so the 6 GHz performance testing can be achieved. Moreover, future TR-398 test cases are also possible through test suite upgrades of AWE TR-398. By testing with real client devices, the actual Quality of Experience (QoE) can be reviewed and analyzed.

AWE TR-398 Topology

With the TR-398 test suite provided, it is possible to perform the TR-398 test automatically or to modify test cases and condition manually with ease. The hardware itself is 6 GHz compatible and can also be used for Wi-Fi Mesh related performance testing. Wi-Fi mesh related testing will be introduced in a later issue of TR-398 as well as other performance test plans of other Standard Development Organizations (SDOs) including ETSI, CCSA, and more.
