The ByteBlower Wireless Endpoint is software that turns your mobile devices into ByteBlower Ports.
The Wireless Endpoint runs on your SmartPhone, tablet or Laptop; it's the software that generates the testing traffic. You need to install the Wireless Endpoint on all devices you want to test. This Wireless Endpoint software is available for free on all major app stores. You can find the download links collected in the website below.
Tests are organized from the ByteBlower chassis. For the Wireless Endpoint to become active it needs to reach the management connection of the ByteBlower. When possible, we suggest connecting the second management interface into the Access Point. This is the Lan only option explained in the the link below:
On the ByteBlower chassis, it's the Meeting Point software that does the interaction with the Wireless Endpoint. It can be installed on any ByteBlower server when you have a valid license for it.
Setting up a Wireless Endpoint is identical on all supported devices.
Start the Wireless Endpoint
Enter the IP address of your Meeting Point. This is required the first time only. Next time, the app will fill in the previously used address by default.
Push the button to go to the next page to connect with the Meeting Point.
On top of the screen, the Wireless Endpoint displays its current state. There are five possible states
At the bottom of the screen, there is an Abort button. When you push this button, the Wireless Endpoint will go back from the Registered to the Ready state. When in the Armed or Running, the Abort button is disabled.

From now on, you can sit back and control the entire test process using your GUI.
Running Test Scenarios
When you start a test scenario using Wireless Endpoints, the Meeting Point will automatically initialize all Wireless Endpoints.
Have a great time using our Wireless Endpoints !
