Performance Evalution of 802.16 (WiMAX) Based Mesh Nework Using Routing Protocols
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a MAC and physical layer wireless communications technology for outdoor Broadband Wireless Access (BWA). WiMAX supports multimedia applications such as video conference, Voice over IP (VoIP) and online gaming. This paper presented the analysis on three routing protocols (AODV, OLSR, and GRP) for WiMax environment. As assumption of each node has its routing capabilities within its own network is prepared. The performance metrics include delay, load, and throughput. The study used OPNET simulator for the analyization of performance.
