Throughput and PDR and Delay based Performance Analysis of IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11
Wireless networks are becoming omnipresent in the world. They offer numerous advantages for computing applications, including lesser wiring charges, simple data transfer, industrial controls, hospitals, hotels, home/office automation as well as remote monitoring capabilities. The IEEE 802.11 is the most widely deployed WLAN technology as of today while IEEE 802.15.4 technology is a low data rate, less power consumption, less cost, wireless networking protocol. This paper gives a short overview of IEEE 802.11 along with IEEE 802.15.4 and the authors examine the performance of IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15.4 through simulation and measurement of throughput and Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR) parameters with AODV utilizing NS2 by taking 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 nodes.
