NTA1000v7M configurations (Currently Shipping)

The latest NTA1000v7M can be purchased in either the S or the 10G configuration. The S configuration packs in 3 wireless interface cards, all available for wireless testing. The 10G option comes with 2 wireless interface cards and a dual port 10Gb/s Ethernet card.

Currently shipping NTA1000v7 systems have an “M” designation and use the AsiaRF AW7915-NP1 wireless 802.11ax card: NTA1000v7M-S, NTA1000v7M-10G

Note: The NTA1000v7 systems are no longer shipped with the Intel AX200 wireless 802.11ax card. The update to the AsiaRF AW7915-NP1 allows CDRouter to simulate multiple virtual 802.11ax clients during testing.

Recovery/Upgrade

Normally, there is no reason to have to rebuild either of the internal disks. However, due to a disk failure or software corruption, etc., it may be necessary to restore either or both disks to their factory defaults. In addition, QA Cafe may create new disk images from time to time that feature updates to the underlying system (separate from CDRouter updates). If you need to rebuild either of your disks for any reason, you can find detailed instructions on how to do this here:
