FTP and DATABASE Statistics in Wireless Network Environment for Web Client

Rajan Vohra, R.S. Sawhney, Sahibjeet Singh Dhindsa


This paper presents the modeling and implementation of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) based on OPNET simulator. Our model is then evaluated to measure the performance of the wireless local area network for campus/university environment. We tested our model against two types of applications (database and FTP) in two sites each comprising of 20 users and found that among a set of other parameters response time and Task processing time were highly affected by the number of users per application with and without load balancing. OPNET simulation showed the impact of load balancing on wireless and wire-line network for two different types of applications (database and ftp)[5-15].


WLAN, Load Balancing, Delay, Task Processing Time, Throughput.
