Abstract

This paper presents an analysis and measurement results for an experimental study on throughput, range and efficiency performance of IEEE 802.11a, 802.11n and 802.11ac standards in an indoor environment on a typical University Campus. The investigation considers a number of key system features including PHY layers mainly, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO), Channel Bonding and Short-Guard Interval (SGI) in the heterogeneous wireless network. The experiment is carried out for the IEEE 802.11ac standard along with the legacy protocols 802.11a/n in a heterogeneous environment which is typically deployed on Campus. The results compare the maximum throughput of IEEE 802.11 standard amendments, in terms of theoretical and experimental throughput over TCP and UDP protocols for different set of parameters and features to check their efficiency and range. To achieve this desired goal, different tests are proposed. The result of these tests will help to determine the capability of each protocol and their efficiency in a practical heterogeneous on-campus environment.
