    Testing simultaneous Bluetooth and WiFi suggestions?

    billsalt

      I'd like to do performance testing with simultaneous Bluetooth and WiFi.  Is there a suggested setup or demo app that can help me on this, or do I need to create my own?

       

      Ideally, I'd like a WiFi loopback running simultaneously with a Bluetooth and BLE loopbacks (create servers for each).

       

      I get lost crawling through the SDK; is there a set of documentation on all of the samples and applications in it?  NOOB question, I know...

       

      Thanks!

          We have performance testing for individual radios , presently we do not have mfg test for combo.

          But we do have sample applications that use combo, Bluetooth Internet Gateway(bt_internet_gateway) , bt_smartbridge are few applications that you can refer to.

            Thanks -- I found the internet_gateway demo, but it doesn't seem to run correctly on 3.5.2, or at least not as shown in the app note from the forum (BIG RESTful Smart Server Demo).  I use the make:

            demo.bt_internet_gateway.restful_smart_server-BCM943341WCD1 download run

             

            Output to the serial terminal:

              I noticed the same. But then then once you initiate an active scan, it is successful and you see a print on the console indicating the same,

                One main issue: I'd like to test simultaneous performance of WiFi and Bluetooth _classic_ (BR/EDR), not BLE.  Actually, I'd like to have all three active.  I may try to merge in the RFCOMM example if I can get that all working.

                 

                Any help or suggestions would be welcome!
