The objective of this paper is to integrate a multi-hop transmission between WLAN 802.11n and 802.11g IEEE standards, so as to enhance the throughput and reduce the data dropped packet and media access delay which is used in IOT & multimedia applications. In the past decades, Wireless Local Area Network standards were used only for transmission of low bandwidth traffic, but with the ongoing standards such as 802.11n and 802.11g, there is a possibility to transmit high bandwidth traffic, such as video traffic and voice traffic. This paper also analyzes the performance of these IEEE standards with a setup of four different scenarios under the Riverbed modeler 17.5. The network performance for each scenario has been evaluated in terms of data drop packet, MAC delay and throughput using a novel of integrated network.
