Bitrate Results

How the bitrate and MCS values are computed and what they mean.

The sensor averages the bitrate of all Data frames sent from the Access Point destined to the sensor over a minute bucket. The sensor also calculates the most frequent Modulation and Coding Scheme index used for all Data frames over a minute bucket.

Below is a screenshot of a sensor's Bitrate charts with the MCS charts expanded. The bitrate charts display the data rate in megabits per second. The MCS charts show the most frequent MCS value. The hover on the MCS chart shows the MCS index, the data rate in megabits per second, the bandwidth in megahertz, and the guard interval, which is either Long Guard Interval (LGI) or Short Guard Interval (SGI).
