Wired throughput for the Dual-Band Velop platform came in at 915Mbps, this was just under the 936Mbps we received with the original Velop platform.
Mobile Throughput testing with the iPhone X gave us 513Mbps with the Velop dual-Band. This is down only slightly when compared the original Velop at 545Mbps. Overall when we look at tall platforms the Velop DB performs better than 50% of tested solutions.
Last, we have wireless throughput. Starting with 2.4GHz testing which for this unit had to be done with a legacy adapter that was 2.4GHz N capable only, the USB-N13 from ASUS. This gave us throughput of 56Mbps in testing which was quite a bit lower than competing solutions. Moving over to 5GHz we were able to put our PCE-AC88 back to work and with this solution reached 535Mbps which is on par with competing mesh platforms and even the original Velop platform.
Looking at the orange bars on the chart, we take a look at the backhaul of the platform. This involves two PCs, each connected to a node with a wired connection. The Dual-Band Velop offered up 426Mbps between nodes at 15ft. This compares to the original Velop which offered 479Mbps and the Orbi from Netgear that came in at 369Mbps.
