Performance of Routing Protocols in WiMAX Networks

Wireless networks play an important role in modern era for transmitting data with minimal overhead and maximum possible speed. The selection of an appropriate routing protocol is a key issue when designing a scalable and efficient wireless networks. Various routing protocols have been used in wireless networks. In this paper, the authors investigate different routing protocols and evaluate their performances on 802.16 WiMAX networks. Using simulation, different routing protocols have been tested with various network parameters. Results show that DSDV in general outperforms other routing protocols.
