In our tests, we often collected 100 samples that would provide a “normalized” distribution. The more samples collected, the better chance Ajaxtest would return a normalized distribution. Often, you must review result data to prune invalid and/or outliers as LTE TCP downloads are sometimes affected by uncontrolled factors due to the variable nature of the internet. Some features that are not contained in the Ajaxtest demo above include methods to automatically detect and prune outliers using standard deviation and other calculations. Ajaxtest reporting also analyze 2 simultaneous test results comparing results between the TCP optimized and non-TCP-optimized flows executing at the same time.
These tests were executed by Alcatel-Lucent / Nokia system test and field installation teams to validate performance improvements when routing LTE data traffic over the “TCP split-tunnel” network equipment that our company developed and deployed into Verizon’s LTE network. This equipment increased data throughput (decreased load time) between 10-50% over non-optimized traffic depending on the size of the data sample as validated by Ajaxtest.
