significant place and popularity in business and the computer industry. The major benefit of wireless LANs is increased flexibility and mobility. This research investigated the effect of multiple security mechanisms on the performance of congested and un-congested networks. The effect of different TCP and UDP packet sizes on performance of secure networks was also studied. The results showed that WEP encryption significantly degrades the performance of wireless networks. I. WIRELESS NETWORKS…

Performance measurements have been done in order to apprehend the real network throughput under typical user applications and to have insight into other network characteristics, typical of the wireless medium.

RealMedia Streaming Performance on an IEEE 802 . 11 b Wireless LAN

This paper presents experimental measurements of RealMedia audio/video streaming applications on an IEEE 802.11b wireless LAN. Empirical traffic measurements collected using a wireless network

Performance investigation of secure 802.11 wireless LANs : raising the security bar to which level?

The results showed that different security mechanisms degraded WLAN performance in different ways, and network performance degradation increased as the protection of the security mechanisms increased.

Performance Evaluation of Live Video Streaming Service in 802.11b WLAN Environment under Different Load Conditions

The main conclusion of this study is that despite a common belief live streaming multimedia services are not ready for wide implementation in hot-spot areas where both high traffic volume and relatively weak signal strength may deny the service easily.

An Empirical Characterization of Instantaneous Throughput in 802.11b WLANs

The findings show that as the number of stations increases, the overall throughput decreases and its variance increases and the per-station performance depends significantly on the wireless card implementation and does not depend as much on the station’s processing capacity.

Intercepting mobile communications: the insecurity of 802.11

Several serious security flaws in the Wired Equivalent Privacy protocol are discovered, stemming from mis-application of cryptographic primitives, which lead to a number of practical attacks that demonstrate that WEP fails to achieve its security goals.

An approach to modeling performance evaluation on the ethernet with QoS parameters

This paper proposes an empirical approach to model the performance of Ethernet with QoS lQuality of Servicesr parameters, and shows how Ethernet performance can be predicted and maintained through using the proposed methodology, and then to promote the system throughput.

Benchmarking Methodology for Network Interconnect Devices

This document discusses and defines a number of tests that may be used to describe the performance characteristics of a network interconnecting device and describes specific formats for reporting the results of the tests.
