Huawei announced today that Tolly Group, a leading independent testing organization, has validated the performance of Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution. The results highlighted in Tolly Group’s verification report show that, compared with indoor wall plate and settled Access Point (AP) solutions from other mainstream wireless network vendors, Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution delivers outstanding performance, easy management, zero roaming, and rapid self-networking. This validation further assures customers of Huawei’s long term commitment to delivering high performance and easy-to-manage wireless network solutions.
In their validation testing at Tolly Group’s state-of-the-art testing facility, Tolly Group engineers evaluated the coverage and throughput of Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution under the same conditions as traditional wall plate and settled AP solutions from other wireless network vendors. The results showed that Huawei’s solution significantly outperformed other vendors’ offerings. The test results are as follows:
Comparison between Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution and indoor wall plate AP solutions from other vendors
According to Tolly Group’s test results, Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution's multi-client performance outpaces the competition, scoring 41-45% higher than indoor wall plate AP solutions from other vendors.
Comparison between Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution and indoor settled AP solutions from other vendors
The results from Tolly's tests showed that Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution's multi-client performance is 4.87, 5.38, and 4.51 times higher than indoor settled AP solutions of other vendors.
Further testing validated that Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution delivers easy management, zero roaming, self-networking, and Internet of Things (IoT) integration. The results showed that Huawei’s plug-and-play Remote Radio Unit (RRU) does not require a license which saves management nodes and costs for customers. In self-networking mode, central APs can quickly complete configuration in five simple steps, taking just three minutes. The Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution supports zero roaming with no service interruption during the roaming process. Zero roaming also does not affect product performance. While achieving high-quality wireless network coverage, the Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution also provides a solid foundation for future IoT applications.
Jane Fu, Director of WLAN Product, Switch & Enterprise Communications Product Line, Huawei said: "Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution adopts an innovative distributed architecture to meet customers' demands for wireless coverage in high-density environments. This not only improves network performance, but also simplifies management and optimizes signal coverage. The testing performed by Tolly Group provides independent validation of the technological strength and performance of this solution, providing customers with further confidence in the solution’s ability to support their high-density, wireless coverage needs."
Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution has been developed specifically for high-density environments such as hotels, hospital wards, and student dormitories. It is designed to overcome coverage dead zones in these environments which cannot be solved by traditional solutions that require intensive management. Unlike the traditional “AC (access controller) + FIT APs” architecture, Huawei Agile Distributed Wi-Fi Solution adopts a three-layer “AC + Central APs + RRUs” distributed architecture. This enables the solution to not only extend the use of RRUs to inside rooms to guarantee full signal coverage, but also improve performance and reduce management nodes.
