Tom Posted January 21, 2021 Report Share Posted January 21, 2021 Wireless radios use MCS rates to express a few pieces of information: the QAM modulation depth, number of spatial channels, coding rate. What do these mean? Check out our IW episode for details! But, the real throughput you are likely to see in a radio online interface is most likely just approaching this maximum limit. Multipath propagation, changing weather conditions, interference, physical obstructions, and antenna alignment mismatch are other factors influencing the actual throughput. In the end, you have to understand that the throughput you see depends on many factors and it should be taken as such. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
