802.11ac - Wireless Gigabit Speeds Driving Changes in Wireless Analysis

2,345 views

Published on

To watch the full-length Ondemand Webcast go to: http://bit.ly/80211ac_wireless_gigabit

802.11ac is the very latest technology to be introduced as part of the 802.11 family of specifications. With 11ac, wireless networking shatters the gigabit threshold, delivering up to 6.93Gbps (aggregated throughput) under certain configurations. Even though the specification is still at least a year away from ratification, equipment is already being introduced to the market based on a draft version of the standard.

Traditional wireless LAN analysis relied on USB adapters being used as receivers to capture wireless packets for analysis. With 11ac, these days are long gone. USB is just not capable of moving data at the rates possible with 11ac. A new method for capturing data for analysis is required. Join us as we dive into 802.11ac, and demonstrate what we believe will be the new standard in wireless packet capture and analysis.

In this web seminar, we will cover:

- The basics of 802.11ac
- A comparison of 802.11ac with 802.11n
- Deficiencies in traditional WLAN capture and analysis techniques for 802.11ac
- New techniques for capturing data at 802.11ac speeds

What you will learn:
- How 802.11ac works
- How the technology will likely be deployed
- Why it is relevant for enterprises
- How to perform wireless data capture and analysis at 802.11ac speeds

  22. 22. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsThe Problem with “Then”• I’m most probably NOT near the problem• I still need supported devices• I need supported devices that equal or exceed themost capable devices on my network – now 802.11ac• And, most importantly …• USB is simply NOT up to the task!22
  23. 23. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsUSB• USB 1.1 (Full Speed)‒ September 1998‒ 12 Mbps‒ If you still have equipment with v1.1, getsomething new!• USB 2.0 (High Speed)‒ April 2000‒ 480 Mbps theoretical; 280 Mbps effective‒ Extremely common for laptops in use• USB 3.0 (Super Speed)‒ November 2008‒ 5 Gbps theoretical; 3.2 Gbps effective23
  24. 24. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsNow Let’s Review24
  25. 25. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsDoing Some 802.11ac Math• Assume 2-antenna APs and STAs at 80MHz = 867Mbps• Assume effective throughput of 520 Mbps (60%)• Assume you can “hear” 3 different APs• If our analysis requires aggregating data from the 3distinct APs together, the aggregated analysisthroughput is• 1.56 Gbps• Using USB devices, v3.0 is required for both theWLAN adapters AND the laptop – not easy to find!25
  26. 26. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsAnd It Will Get Faster …• Assume an 8-antenna AP, 4 2-antenna stations at 160MHz using MU-MIMO (1.73 Gbps to each STA)• Assume effective throughput of 1.04 Gbps (60%)• If our analysis requires aggregating data from the 4STAs together, the aggregated analysis throughputis• 4.16 Gbps• This exceeds the 3.2 Gbps effect rate for USB 3.0, thevery best the market has to offer26
  27. 27. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsSo, What “Now”?• As wireless approaches wired speeds, it’s time tostart relying on the wire• Distributed analysis using deployed assets – APs –is the only effective solution as wireless speedsgrow• The choices:‒ Remote PCap‒ Custom Remote Adapters27
  28. 28. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsRemote Pcap• A WinPcap feature that allows interaction with aremote machine to capture packets• The remote device must be running the remote Pcapdaemon (rpcapd)• Remote Capture Protocol (RPCAP) modes:‒ Passive Mode (default): analyzer connects to the remotedaemon, sends the appropriate commands, starts the capture‒ Active Mode: remote daemon tries to establish a connection tothe analyzer, the analyzer sends the appropriate commands tothe daemon, starts the capture• Simply start a capture on the analyzer and point it tothe available RPCAP interfaces28
  29. 29. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsRemote Pcap (cont.)29
  30. 30. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsSupport for RPCAP• Not easy to find – this isn’t a “marketed feature” formanufacturers• Devices we have worked with include:‒ Aerohive: Model HiveAP 120‒ Ruckus: ZoneFlex 7363 (requires ZoneDirector Controller)• Others that we’re aware of:‒ Cisco MDS 9216• We will continue to compile a list30
  31. 31. © WildPackets, Inc.#wp_wirelesspacketsCustom Remote Adapters• Allow an AP that can be put into promiscuous modeto act like a direct-connected sniffing device• Allow the full capabilities of the AP to be leveraged• APs are “reconfigured” via the AP controllersoftware• Depending on the manufacturer and the model, APsmay or may not be able to continue sending traffic• Once configured, choosing the remote adapter fromwithin OmniPeek allows wireless packets to becollected directly from the AP31
