Abstract (Summary)

This paper compares the performance of a wired and a partial wireless network sending storage data from client’s end to the server’s end. The purpose of this project is to observe if a wireless network can be an efficient alternative to a wired network to send storage specific protocols and data. The comparison has been made on the basis of throughput i.e., number of bits being transferred per second, and delay i.e., time taken by one bit to transfer from one end to another. For a wired network, delay can be added to the transmission at each node depending on their processing speed as well as the distance between two nodes. For a wireless network other factors like channel bandwidth and buffer size play an important role. In this paper, we have also observed the effect of buffer size on a wireless network and how it can be manipulated to minimize delay and packet loss in the network. We have implemented and simulated our network scenario in Opnet Modeler by Riverbed.
