The ever-expanding and explosive growth of the internet over the last decade has led to an increasing demand for high-speed, ubiquitous internet access. Broadband wireless technologies are increasingly gaining popularity by the successful global deployment of the wireless personal area networks (Bluetooth-IEEE 802.15.1), wireless local area networks (WiFi-IEEE 802.11b), and Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WiMAXIEEE 802.16a). In this paper the authors have used the QualNet Simulator to analyze the performance of IEEE 802.11b, 802.15.1, and 802.16a Standards by varying mobility of the nodes.
