Enterprise Wi-Fi Stress Test: Cloud-managed 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) Access Points


Published September 2021


The cloud has transformed businesses in more ways than we can count; and Wi-Fi infrastructure is at an inflection point. Network performance is more important than ever as IT copes with increasing demands, in particular for prioritized voice and video traffic. Many organizations are also considering the added benefits of network analytics using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to gauge the end-user experience and Wi-Fi performance.

This report details the performance attributes of cloud-managed 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) access points (APs) in a high-density and high-capacity environment with a mix of video, VoIP, and data traffic. The intent is to test cloud-managed enterprise AP performance under a real-world scenario that is relevant to most enterprise networks today.
