Indoor Connected Home Smart Speaker WiFi Router Performance Analysis Using XFdtd

To maintain connections in complex environments with signal-blocking obstacles, it is useful to have beamforming capabilities in network equipment to steer the signal path and optimize connectivity.  In this example, we use XFdtd to demonstrate the performance of a MU-MIMO WiFi router with antenna arrays for 2.4, 5, and 6-7 GHz ranges.  The maximum coverage possible with different antenna array combinations is discussed to demonstrate the performance capabilities of the device.
