    Abstract: Internet becomes a vital and important service being integrated in the current scenarios of competing technologies, therefore there is a need for higher speed broadband access. Emergence and evolutions of technologies from the first generation to 4G LTE then to the promising 5G and WiMAX . For achieving high data rates and services to multiple users, WiMAX is one of the competing technology, which was introduced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) designated for fixed wireless and mobile wireless applications and Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) is another technology which is a trend in the vehicular network in the current situations employed in the Intelligent Transportation System in the United States which supports high speed data rates. In this paper, the authors considered a hybrid scenario and compared the communication link taken place in the DSRC-to- DSRC traditional system with the hybrid DSRC-WiMAX system communication link namely DSRC-to-Fixed WiMAX and Mobile WiMAX-to-Fixed WiMAX, with evaluation of performance by considering certain parameters simulated in MATLAB.
