Abstract

Wireless technologies have rapidly evolved and are becoming ubiquitous. An increasing number of users attach to the Internet using these technologies; hence the performance of these wireless access links is a key point when considering the performance of the whole Internet. In this paper we present a measurement-based analysis of the performance of an IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) client and an UMTS client. The measurements were carried out in a controlled laboratory. The wireless access links were loaded with traffic from a multi-point videoconferencing application and we measured three layer-3 metrics (One-Way-Delay, IP-Delay-Variation and Packet Loss Ratio). Additionally we estimate the performance of a WiFi and Ethernet client as a reference. Our results show that Ethernet and WiFi have comparable performances. Both the WiMAX and the UMTS links exhibited an asymmetric behavior, with the uplink showing an inferior performance. We also assessed the causes of the discretization which appears in the jitter distributions of these links.
