WiMAX Simulation Model to Investigate Performance Factors
WiMAX stands for World interoperability for Microwave Access. It is considered a major part of broadband wireless network having the IEEE 802.16 standard. WiMAX provides innovative, fixed as well as mobile platforms for broadband internet access anywhere anytime with different transmission modes. This paper presents a WiMAX simulation model designed with OPNET modeler 14 to measure the delay, load and the throughput performance factors. The results show approximately equal load and throughput while the delay values vary among the different base stations.
