WiFi and WiMAX are the most technologies for broadband wireless access are used nowadays. The excessive demand for providing mobile users with broadband wireless access has attracted tremendous investment from the telecommunications industry in the development and deployment of WiMAX and WiFi networks. Voice over IP (VoIP) over these technologies will be one of the killer applications for rapid deployment of WiMAX and WiFi networks. The legal desire for bundling voice and data will increase the portion of voice traffic in these networks. Therefore, VoIP, as the current technology for making voice calls through packet switch networks, will be a key application in WiMAX and WiFi networks. The increase of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications such as Skype, Google Talk, and MSN Messenger along with emerging deployment of WiMAX networks is making VoIP over WiMAX an attractive market and a driving force for both carriers and equipment suppliers in capturing and spurring the next wave of telecommunications innovation, though challenges remain. However, the enhancement on the hardware and application sides only seems inadequate. The chosen of proper network environment is also crucial in order to deliver the voice communication and multimedia session over the Internet. Optimization of the VoIP call capacity over WiMAX and WiFi networks is one such crucial challenge and remains an open research issue. Hence, in this project, we present the performance evaluation of VoIP in two wireless network protocols, WiMAX and WiFi as a baseline to evaluate the VoIP performance.
