IEEE 802.16e, mobile WiMAX, is a wireless technology used to provide very large data rate over large areas to a large number of users (operates something) where broadband is unavailable (not able to be used or obtained). WiMAX network operators (switch board exchange telephonic) provide WiMAX subscriber units that enable connection to the sophisticated 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 few area networks and compare their performance in terms of mobility (the ability to move or be moved freely and easily).
