Abstract
This Technical Report intends to provide a performance test plan for “IEEE standard for Information technology-Telecommunications and information exchange between systems Local and metropolitan area networks- Specific requirements Part 11: Wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications specification”. TR-398 Issue 1 is specifically developed for 802.11n/ac compliant access point devices. The performance of Wi-Fi station (STA) is not in the scope of this project. TR-398 Issue 1 is intended to address a common set of performance test cases according to in-home scenarios that can be applied to different deployment. The performance test cases are intended for the access point, to verify: 1. RF capability 2. Throughput performance 3. Spatial consistency 4. Airtime fairness 5. Connection capability 6. Stability/Robustness

Abstract
This particular suite of tests has been developed to help implementers thoroughly evaluate the basic functionality of 802.11 wireless Access Points in either the 5 GHz or 2.4GHz band. These tests are designed to determine if a product conforms to specifications defined within Clauses 8-11 of IEEE Std. 802.11-2012.

Abstract
This particular suite of tests has been developed to help implementers thoroughly evaluate the functionality of WPA2 AES-CCMP (PSK) encryption in their 802.11 wireless Access Points in either the 5 GHz or 2.4GHz band, within a Robust Security Network Association (RSNA). These tests are designed to determine if a product conforms to the security specifications defined within IEEE 802.11-2012. This test plan was formally known as the 802.11 MAC AP Security Enhancement Test Suite.
