TIP: Uplink MU-Mimo from ax200

We are using the SDK2.4 on the eap102.
We have ~40 Stations connected to the eap102 AP (AX) and connection seems stable.
Performance testing this connection, TX focused (from STA to AP), we get very low speed (~1Mb for each client).
Configuration of the EAP is standard TIP one:
{
“interfaces”: [
{
“ethernet”: [
{
“select-ports”: [
“WAN*”
]
}
],
“ipv4”: {
“addressing”: “dynamic”
},
“name”: “WAN”,
“role”: “upstream”,
“services”: [
“lldp”,
“ssh”
],
“ssids”: [
{
“bss-mode”: “ap”,
“encryption”: {
“ieee80211w”: “optional”,
“key”: “testPass”,
“proto”: “psk2”
},
“name”: “testSSID”,
“wifi-bands”: [
“5G”
]
}
]
}
],
“metrics”: {
“health”: {
“interval”: 120
},
“statistics”: {
“interval”: 120,
“types”: [
“ssids”,
“lldp”,
“clients”
]
}
},
“radios”: [
{
“band”: “5G”,
“channel”: 161,
“channel-mode”: “HE”,
“channel-width”: 80,
“country”: “CA”
}
],
“services”: {
“lldp”: {
“describe”: “uCentral”,
“location”: “universe”
},
“ssh”: {
“port”: 22
}
},
“uuid”: 1
}

From the technical Datasheets for the eap102 I understand that uplink MU-Mimo is also supported. I would expect this to provide a much better performance numbers.
Also, test benchmark on the TIP Jira shows much better results (not for 40 devices but still much better than what I get for the same number of devices).

Am I missing anything?

Thanks

Hello, @tirank

Sorry for the late reply. We are now back to the Edgecore OpenWiFi User Forum.
I’m Nick Ho of the Edgecore Technical Support Team Taipei Office.

Could you tell us your test environment & TIP firmware version?
Connect directly to the Ethernet WAN, what is the network speed?
If testing with iperf, what is the throughput?

We could start a remote session to assist you.
Feel free to reach us.

Thanks
