LAN and WLAN Throughput
LAN throughput for the Pro was on par with expectations at 947.4Mbps. Our new wireless to wireless test showed 372Mbps for the mAX Pro.
2.4GHz throughput reached a peak of 71.3Mbps on the 20MHz band. Arris does not afford the ability to force bands, so we could not connect at 40MHz for testing.
For 5GHz, we received a healthy 782Mbps but once again was unable to tell if we were on the 80MHz or 160MHz band.
Backhaul performance was at the top of our rather admittedly barren charts. That said, 840Mbps between units is a rather solid number.
Benchmarks - Mobile Throughput
Testing for mobile is a bit constrained by the "SmartConnect" feature of the Arris mAX Pro. Without the ability to control which band we are connecting to, we are simply stuck to testing what it allows. That said, we were able to connect with 5GHz Wi-Fi 6 with our iPhone 11 and tested the SURFBoard at several distances.
Results are shown above and offer 727-733Mbps through 10ft, dropping to 620Mbps at 15ft and 332Mbps at 20ft. This makes the Arris the highest performing solution we have seen in Mobile throughput.
Adding to this, we set up the second node to check backhaul performance in different locations, 10 and 15 ft from the base node. At 10ft, we saw 840Mbps. And moving to 15ft, it only dropped to 812Mbps.
