RSSI/BSSID/SSID Measurements
Posted by Craig Godbold, Last modified by Craig Godbold on 14 April 2022 09:13 AM

Our ByteBlower GUI from 2.16.2 onwards offers RSSI/BSSID/SSID measurements as standard in the HTML ByteBlower report.

This is great news for our Wireless Endpoint users!

So, how can we take advantage of this new feature? → Roaming tests

As users of wireless devices are often on the move, it is useful to be able to see how this affects the signal strength of the Wifi and how it varies when moving from one access point to another. This is the case when moving around an office for example.

Example Project in the ByteBlower GUI

In this project, we have 3 WEP devices that are connected to the meeting point and will receive downstream UDP traffic.

The WEP's are: 

  • Windows 10 laptop
  • Android mobile device (Galaxy S20)
  • IOS mobile device (Iphone 13)

 

Setting up the Test

 

  • 4 ports are created in the port tab.
  • 1 for a "server"
  • 3 ports corresponding to the 3 WEP devices.

 

 

Create a Frame

  • We use the default frame size for this demonstration.

 

 

Create a Frameblasting Flow

 

  • In this example we have a speed of 0.5 Mbps
