Mobile Throughput

 

With mobile throughput, I run testing through an iPhone 7 Plus and Mi Note Pro to see the performance with mobile devices. Throughput is tested with the router in is default state from the factory.

The Ally showed greater throughput with the iPhone 7 Plus reaching 98 Mbps.

5GHz mobile throughput reached 486 Mbps with the iPhone 7 Plus while the Note Pro touched 249 Mbps.

 

 

Wireless Range

 

Our next test for this new setup sees how range affects performance. With this, we start at 10Ft and move out to 30Ft, after we reach the end we move to a location again at 30Ft but with two walls between us and the router. Routers are tested in their default configuration for this part; the client device is the iPhone 7 Plus.

Starting off this test, the Ally Plus gives us 99 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. As we move away performance drops only slightly to 90 Mbps at 30ft, two walls net us 76 Mbps.

5GHz starts at 447 Mbps which stays pretty solid through 30ft. Two walls drop throughput to 267 Mbps.

 

 

File Performance

The Ally Plus certainly isn't a storage-centric solution. With our SanDisk Extreme Pro, we were only able to get 23 MB/s read and 17 MB/s write out of the device.
