WIMAX, AODV, DYMO, ZRP, Random Waypoint Mobility, QoS Metrics.


WIMAX (World Wide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is used to provide a wireless solution in

the metropolitan area networks. WIMAX network is capable of wide range coverage, high data rates, secured transmission and mobility supported at vehicular speed. Mobile WIMAX is one of the best concepts for system designed in fixed wireless access to provide good performance and cost effective solution. In this paper, performance of the WIMAX network is analyzed in terms of throughput, end to end delay, and jitter. Simulation is carried out using QUALNET simulator. In this paper AODV, DYMO and ZRP routing protocols are applied to the created mobility scenario with variable transmission range. AODV and DYMO shows low jitter and low end to end delay. It is concluded that AODV and DYMO gives optimized result below 40dbm transmission range with respect to throughput and ZRP shows high throughput above 40dbm transmission range.
