In this paper, the performance of ZigBee and WiMAX are presented through measurements of three different Quality Of Service (QOS) parameters such as throughput, delay and packet delivery ratio with respect to AODV (Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector) protocol using NS2. The ZigBee technology based on standard 802.15.4 which is designed to meet the needs for simple, low power and low cost WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Network). In parallel, the WiMAX technology based on standard 802.16 which offers higher capacity and wider coverage area than cellular network.
