A QOS Oriented Analysis in WIMAX

Lovepreet Kaur, Amandeep Kaur


Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is one of the most prominent technologies for broadband wireless access supporting multimedia traffic and application through Quality of Service management for fixed and mobile devices. Quality of Service is a component of 4G broadband wireless network which supports various applications that utilize the resources within network. This paper deals with Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access technology that emphasis on Quality-of-services. Various types of Quality of Service parameters like packet loss, average throughput, and average end-to-end delay are predicted using Opnet 14.5
