Wireless Range

 

Our next test for this new setup sees how range affects performance. We start at 10Ft and move out to 30Ft. Routers are tested in their default configuration for this part; the client device is the iPhone 7 Plus.

The Rapture is the burnt orange in the charts starting at 92 Mbps at 10Ft and at 30Ft holding on too much of that performance at 77 Mbps.

The 5GHz band does even better starting at 539 Mbps at 10Ft and ending at 526 Mbps at 30Ft, losing basically no performance.

 

 

Sessions

This test gives the router a quick stress to see what kind of load the router can handle.

 

As tested, we found the Rapture starting at 937 Mbps and half way through at 128 sessions dropping to 837 Mbps. At the finish line of 512 sessions, the Rapture held on at 697 Mbps, second only to the RT-1900p.
