Performance evaluation for wireless network

Okafor Doris.N and Okereke George .E

Wireless Network technologies in recent times are faced with several challenges. This has made it impracticable not just to have networks but to obtain its optimal performance at any given time. Recent researches have focused much on network technologies especially data communication networks at various times. This paper examines the behaviors of network data packets in order to evaluate its performance for wireless network. Cisco packet tracer 7.0 simulator is used to determine the UDP/TCP throughput, delay and packet loss in the wireless network. Top down decomposition design, trace and event driven techniques which are standard network simulation methods are used in this paper. The result obtained was compared with wired LAN to examine performance and efficiency of the two networks and it showed that wired networks have better quality of service, high speed of delivery than the wireless networks
