Comparative Performance Evaluation Using OPNET for OLSR in OFDM (802.11a) & Extended Rate PHY (802.11g) at 54 Mbps Data Rate

Authors(3) :-Ruchita, Mamta Sachdeva, Jonish

In this paper analysis and performance of OLSR in OFDM (802.11a) & Extended Rate PHY (802.11g) at 54 Mbps Data Rate. We used OPNET Simulation tool we created a network containing 25 mobile nodes for data rate 54 Mbps with transmission power 0.005 watts and buffer size 256000 bits each node moves randomly in the network and simulation time was 1500 sec. OLSR is compared in terms of OFDM (802.11a) and Extended Rate PHY (802.11g) for different QOS’s using OPNET. According to the resulted performance we can say that 802.11g might do a better job of satisfying requirements for mobile applications. The simulation result of the research has practical reference value for further study.
