Test­ing Pro­ce­dures

SMB & HD Zone Sec­tions

HWM (Malaysia) - - LAB TEST -

For our ex­tended sec­tions of SMB and HD Zone, we test and re­view hard­ware for their spe­cific tar­get mar­kets, which is busi­ness and HD (High-Def­i­ni­tion) re­spec­tively. In par­tic­u­lar, SMB prod­ucts are an­a­lyzed for its pro­duc­tiv­ity and ROI as well as TCO fac­tors, while HD prod­ucts are ex­am­ined for their en­ter­tain­ment and life­style qual­ity in a dig­i­tal life.

Wire­less tests are con­ducted via a note­book which has an in­te­grated In­tel Wi-Fi (Wire­less Fidelity) N (IEEE 802.11n) adapter. Per­for­mance is gauged at vary­ing dis­tances (5, 10, and 20 me­ters) by mov­ing the note­book around, while the tested wire­less router stays sta­tion­ary. We use de­fault set­tings.

The router is con­nected via a net­work ca­ble to a test com­puter’s net­work port. 1GB of data, of var­i­ous file sizes, is copied over the wire­less net­work. The tests take into ac­count ob­sta­cles like peo­ple and walls, and hence re­sults can vary with dif­fer­ent en­vi­ron­ments.
