CT520 LANforge WiFIRE 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi Traffic Generator with 32 Virtual STA Interfaces
Used for testing access points and other Wi-Fi networks. Uses a modified wireless driver for Wi-Fi NICs based on the Atheros chipset. It supports up to 32 virtual stations, each of which has its own IP address, IP port space, MAC address and routing table. The virtual stations can be assigned to communicate to a particular access point, use a particular SSID and have an optional WPA2 key assigned. More advanced 802.1X authentication is also included. There is a single Wi-Fi radio per CT520, but multiple LANforge systems can be clustered together for more realistic radio interference patterns and increased traffic generation capability. The radio supports 802.11 a, b, g or n mode. Transmit power and channel/frequency is configured on a per-radio basis. Most other settings are configurable per virtual station.
