Performance Evaluation of WiFi and WiMAX Using Opnet

IEEE 802.16e, mobile WiMAX, is a wireless technology used to provide very high data rate over large areas to a large number of users where broadband is unavailable. WiMAX network operators provide WiMAX subscriber units that enable connection to the metropolitan WiMAX network while Wi-Fi units are used for connecting local devices within homes or businesses. In this paper, the authors use OPNET modeler to simulate and compare Wi-Fi and WiMAX in a small area network and compare their performance in terms of mobility.
