Importance of Testing Point-to-Point Microwave Links
IP traffic throughput testing can provide confidence in link performance beyond the equipment’s built-in signal strength and link quality information. IP throughput testing is often done as part of service level agreements at link turn up and acceptance. Various types of traffic will traverse these new IP based links, with some being mission-critical. Running RFC2544 and/or Y.1564 tests will help verify traffic prioritization. While Bit Error Rate Testing (BERT) will test link stability.
This white paper describes turn-up and troubleshoot testing of point-to-point microwave links. Test procedures will be described step by step.
