Simulation Study of WATM Using MATLAB


Several measures for evaluating the performance of wireless Asynchronous Transfer Mode (WATM) have been published in the literature. Among them: Offered Traffic Load, Handover Traffic Load, Call Admission Control and others. To the best of our knowledge, there is no study that collects all these measures into one GUI simulator. In the present work, eight measures have been discussed and then simulated into friendly used GUI using MATLAB. The proposed simulator enables the network administrator to: enter or select the values of the input parameters; plot and analyze the performance of WATM at different conditions. The graphical results, obtained from the simulator, can assist the administrator to take right decisions to improve the performance of the WATM.
