Fixed and Mobile WiMAX: A Comparison towards the Distance and Height Effects on Performance Degradation

Norzatul Bazamah Azman Shah, Rashidah Ramle, Norbahiyah Awang, and Muhammad Fakhrul Yusuf

Abstract—Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access or WiMAX is a wireless communication system that can provide long distance wireless broadband access with high data throughput in a point to multipoint connection and line of sight or non-line of sight environment. There are two variants of the WiMAX standard called Fixed and Mobile WiMAX. Fixed WiMAX 802.16 delivers point to multipoint broadband wireless access to our homes and offices. Whereas Mobile WiMAX 802.16e gives fully mobile internet access at higher broadband speeds than other broadband networks like Wi-Fi. The paper objective is to compare the performance of Fixed and Mobile WiMax network within the sub urban area by simulating several scenarios. Ten scenarios were created from previous works, by using an open source simulator called NCTUns 5.0. The simulations were based on the changes of system parameters which are base station’s antenna height and distance between Base Station (BS) and Subscriber Station (SS). Both Fixed WiMAX and Mobile WiMAX topology has been tested, and the percentages of performance degradation were analyzed and compared.

Index Terms—Fixed WiMax, mobile WiMax, NCTUns, data rate degradation, base station, subscriber station.
