Performance Measurements of a Wireless Internet Service Providing (WISP) System


AbstractIn this paper, a comprehensive practical test to a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) system is presented. The structure of the system is investigated and its performance is measured for different time units ranging from a Day to a Year periods. The effect of the different parameters on the system behavior is determined and their contribution is detected. The goal of this study is to give a realistic picture to the behavior of such a system as a result of its users demands, network infrastructure and service management techniques.Key word: Wireless Internet service Provider, Latency, Throughput, WLAN Delay, and User Behavior
