Wireless Endpoint Performance Statistics

This page lists the performance statistics for the different Wireless Endpoint versions. These values give us confidence that release to release the app is improving.

For the first release we've done an absolute measurement. These results are a good indication on what you can achieve with the app in a well performing Wi-Fi environment. Depending on your setup and local interference you might measure different values.

In subsequent releases the numbers are both absolute and relative: we run the tests on both the old version and immediately after on the new version. So next to the new performance numbers, there is a direct check on performance regression. Changes of up to 5% can be attributed to small environmental changes.

Measurement setup

We tested the devices using the following physical setup:

  • A ByteBlower 1300 running the latest available ByteBlower software
  • An ASUS GT-AX11000 access point
  • The Wireless Endpoints are placed next to each other on a distance of 1.5m (5ft) of the Access Point
  • The ByteBlower server was connected using an NBASE-T enabled port of the access point.

ByteBlower setup and test parameters

  • 1 Flow for the TCP downstream
  • 1 Flow for the TCP upstream
  • Every flow has a duration of 2 minutes
  • Flow parameters are the defaults of the ByteBlower GUI.

Statistics

The performance statistics below are collected for several Wireless Endpoint versions. The version under test is found in each title.
The setup-pages and the App stores only show latest release but older versions can be requested through ByteBlower support.

Version 2.10.2

ByteBlower server version: 2.10.2

This is the first test-run, reported values are absolute.

Device Operating System WiFi / Wired TCP Throughput Download (Mbps) TCP Throughput Upload (Mbps)
Apple iPadAir2 iOS 12 WiFi 512,04 573,24
Apple iPhone 7 iOS 12 WiFi 571,60 584,38
Apple macBook Pro (2017) macOSX 10.14 (Mojave) WiFi 656,78 646,99
Dell Latitude E5570 laptop Windows 10 WiFi 948,71 907,95
Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8 WiFi 713,71 580,17
Samsung Galaxy S10 Android 9 WiFi 668,48 609,57
Samsung Galaxy Tab2 Android 7 WiFi 340,83 382,16

Version 2.10.4

ByteBlower server version: 2.10.8

This test-run we compared to version 2.10.4 to the previous one (2.10.2). The reported values are the relative. There was no regression. Significant improvements are colored green.

(*) Windows installed updates of the network card drivers compared to the 2.10.2 version. In our opinion, these drivers are still in beta state, causing differences with each update.
