WiMAX is a wireless broadband technology, which promises maximum coverage area and high data rates. WiMAX provides last mile connectivity. This network defines two working models such as fixed WiMAX and mobile WiMAX. The main aim of this paper is to compare and also analyze the performance of the VoIP application over fixed and mobile WiMAX, with respect to various codecs such as G.711, G.723.1ar5.3, G.726ar24, G.728ar16 and G.729. We have considered few QoS parameters such as average end-to-end delay, throughput, average jitter, average one-way delay and average MOS. From the obtained result, codec G.711 and G.726ar24 performs better when compared to other codecs in both fixed and mobile WiMAX network.
