Abstract

The limitation of WiFi coverage and free frequency create problems as well as weaken security and degrade quality of services. Therefore, a complementary wireless technology, WiMAX, is required. WiMAX and WiFi are chosen as both technology are the most highly popular by wireless network protocols usage in Iraq. Simulation on both of the network environments will be used to imitate the real situation in Tikrit University. This study provides a comprehensive field survey on wireless networking in Tikrit University of Iraq. Suitable wireless protocol, expanding coverage, performance of network will be included after the application of this study. The major benefits that have achieved as the outcome of this study are packet delivery ratio and throughput. Both WiFi scenarios achieved packet delivery ratios of 97.2% and 96.012% respectively, while WiMAX scenario scored 98.0% on packet delivery ratio. On the other hand, the throughput was found to produce interesting results and increased with packet size. WiMAX throughput had been discovered to be increasing linearly to the throughput. The maximum throughput achieved by WiMAX was 22.12 Mbps while the WiFi obtained throughputs of 22.46 Kbps and 11.61 Kbps for the different scenarios.
