Wireless News

Ruckus Wireless today said it has released a wireless performance testing program to the Open Source Community.

Originally developed by Ruckus engineers to characterize wireless behavior of real-time IP-based video streaming applications, Zap is a wireless performance measurement utility designed to determine wireless network signal performance accurately over time, space and frequency.

Zap provides a statistical analysis that anticipates the performance of a wireless network by predicting the percent of time and the locations at which performance will be above or below a certain limit. The tool lets network planners test sustained throughput of an existing wireless network and determine the true, sustained and worst-case performance that it is capable of delivering 99.5 percent of the time.

Zap is currently integrated into Ruckus' ZoneFlex Smart wireless LAN products as the underlying engine used by SpeedFlex, a Wi-Fi performance diagnostic tool that lets customers quickly determine the uplink and downlink performance and packet loss of any given wireless connection.

Ruckus released the initial version under the Simplified BSD License. Interested parties can download the source code and request a black paper entitled "Characterizing Wireless Network Performance". See the full press release for further details.
