Session Description: Low cost portable WiFi testing typically lacks of the ability to reproduce high density scenarios. On the other way, expensive lab equipment has different hardware and software than real clients, so they do not provide a good solution to know what will happen in real conditions. We have developped a novel solution which uses the WiFi chipsets and drivers of students’ laptops, enabling tests much closer to real operation. The actual version supports up to 32 clients, enough for a typical classroom, and it is possible to use several simultaneously. It also provides a software layer which enables application tests such as web browsing, file download, YouTube videos and educational platforms.
