This paper presents simulation of WiMAX based system under jamming. The performance of the system was found out to greatly differ with the use of different jamming signals, allowing central areas to be identified, where system development should be focused on. In addition, from the basic theory point of view, rather surprising results were also found. This work should give a clear picture of how the studied WiMAX system performs under jamming as well as without jamming. The results show that some forms of interference degrade the performance of the system rapidly, thus the form of incoming jamming should be known and considered before deploying the system. Single carrier jamming and multi-carrier jamming are discussed here. The issues related to jamming and jamming reduction techniques are also covered. Jamming can destroy communication in the targeted area. Multi-carrier jamming is challenge in WiMAX because WiMAX is having OFDM based physical layer. Simulation is the main approach in this paper. OPNET MODELER 14.5 is the software used for the simulation purpose.
