Investigate the Effect of Video Conferencing Traffic on the Performance of WiMAX Technology
MetadataShow full item record
Abstract: in recent years, WiMAX technology has been wildly used to provide broadband connections to end users. Many modern applications, such as Video conferencing, can be run over this network. Running application soverthe WiMAX platform may decrease its performance. This paper evaluates the influence of Video conference traffic on WiMAX. OPNET is used to carry out the experiment part. Three different types of Video conferencing traffic were simulated. WiMAX delay, load and throughput were measured. The outcome of this research shows that the lowest performance of WiMAX was in the case of Virtual Conference Room traffic, and the best WiMAX performance was under low video traffic.
