"WiFi Access Point Testing in a High Density Environment" - Aruba didn´t win?

  • 1.  "WiFi Access Point Testing in a High Density Environment" - Aruba didn´t win?

    So an unknown indian company tested a couple of access points (https://alethea.in/wifi-access-point-testing-alethea-wifi-experience-test-lab/):

    Aruba AP325
    Cisco 3802i
    Meraki MR52
    Mist AP41
    Ruckus R720
    Ubiquiti UAP-AC-SHD

    The tests were paid by Ubiquiti and of course Ubiquiti won. How did they influence the result at all? I don´t believe that the Cisco or the Ruckus have less performance than the Ubiquiti device. Also the Aruba AP325 wasn´t the best choice in those days.

     

    I ask myself how the results of current 802.11ax  access points (e.g. AP-535) would be if those 100 concurrent clients connect to them. Are there any benchmark results available?

    From my experience if you have a test where all the vendors do not participate in the testing it leaves no room for optimization.  Big companies who make these decisions involve the vendors so that they can get full answers to questions.  You can interpret those results through any lens that you see fit, providing that you understand the company that won the competition paid fot it.
