Comparative Analysis of IEEE 802.11b At 2 Mbps &11 Mbps
The IEEE 802.11 wireless local area standard, WLANs, available in various variants as a/b/g, is one of the most popular wireless standards used in the market today. In this paper, an attempt has been made to analyze and compare the variant IEEE 802.11b using a smart Call Admission and Rate Control (CARC), policy for Quality of Service (QoS), metrics like throughput, end to end delay and packet loss rate at the channel data rate of 2Mbps and 11Mbps respectively. The performance is evaluated for a wireless ad hoc network and the simulation results obtained using network simulator-2 shows a superior throughput performance for real-time and non real time traffic at 11Mbps.
