11g results - Outdoor

Figures 29 and 30 show True MIMO delivering consistently higher throughput at all outdoor test locations, in both uplink and downlink directions. The results also show that Super G / XR has run out of steam by 350 feet, while True MIMO is still delivering better than 13Mbps uplink and 15Mbps downlink at 400 feet! This is phenomenal performance, the likes of which I've never seen until now.

This time, I've provided comparison throughput plots in both uplink and downlink directions for 100, 200, 300 and 400ft test locations. (Since there are only two products per plot, it's easy to tell them apart.)

Don't ask me why the Super G / XR stuff got a throughput kick at 300ft, or why the downlink plots show a similar throughput drop and recovery for both the NETGEAR and Belkin products at around 40 seconds into the plot. The second phenomenon is especially strange, since the test runs were done on different days!
