HTTP and FTP Statistics for Wireless and Wireline Network with & without IEEE 802.11b DCF Based on OPNET
In this paper, performance of wireless networks is analyzed using OPNET IT guru academics edition ver. 9.1 as a simulation tool. As wireless networks don't replace wired networks some cabling is still required to deploy even a simple model so an implementation of a simple Wi-Fi deployment is done to evaluate the performance of global network performance. Performance of wireless network under the fundamental access mechanism called Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) is analyzed by implementing virtual carrier sensing mechanism and fragmentation concept.
