  author={Juwita Mohd Sultan and Garik Markarian and Phillip Benachour},
  journal={Int. J. Web Appl.},
The integration of WiFi and WiMAX will allow seamless connection between users from both systems with a greater capacity, higher bit rates and mobility access. To enable interoperability between WiFi and WiMAX a special gateway is required known as WiFi/WiMAX router. In this paper, we investigate, through the use of OPNET simulation tools, number of WiFi users or hotspots could accommodated by a WiFi/WiMAX router and a WiMAX Base Station. Further, we evaluate the use of suitable applications… Expand
