Samsung Electronics: Linksys WRT54GX and Samsung X25 Laptop Competitive Wireless LAN performance
31 August 2005
Samsung Electronics commissioned The Tolly Group to examine the effective throughput and relative coverage area delivered by the Samsung X25 laptop PC when paired with an access point that utilizes Airgo Networks’s True MIMO™ wireless chipset versus devices that employ other brand components.
Engineers measured the upstream and downstream effective throughput of the Linksys WRT54GX and the Samsung Electronics X25 laptop PC, and measured the range at which the pair could communicate at a minimum of 10 Mbps across variable distances to establish a credible effective coverage area metric. Effective throughput is a metric that combines throughput with coverage area. Both devices, which use Airgo’s True MIMO chipset, were tested against non-MIMO devices, such as the Linksys WRT54G broadband router, the Samsung X25 (with an Intel Centrino 2915ABG), and a Dell Inspiron 8600 (with a Broadcom 1450 Dual Band chipset).
Tests show that the Samsung X25 laptop and the WRT54GX tandem delivered over 10X greater throughput than the average of competitive devices tested and supported Ethernet-speed communications across an area that is 19X greater than the average of rival devices tested.
