The growing of internet and IoT application makes large number of devices will be connected each other to exchange data communication. IEEE made standard of WLAN technology to support the needs. But from the existing standard technologies, there are still deficiencies in delivering the data package for communication. IEEE 802.11ah was made as a new standard of Wi-Fi technology that supports wireless networking scenarios and solving the problem of capacity, coverage and power consumption in IoT era. The wireless access network is very attractive for best-effort data package transmission, but VoIP service on the wireless network is very critical due to its real-time communication characteristic. This research addresses the performance analysis of 802.11 ah standard against VoIP services. To determine the influence of node density in 802.11ah standard, the simulation is done by changing the number of station that access the channel via RAW mechanism. The simulation is performed using network simulator NS3 version 3.23. Based on the result, it can be concluded that the evaluation of IEEE 802.11ah standard in the node density scenario accompanied by the changing of RAW station and RAW group number, the use of MCS 5 with 2 MHz bandwidth resulting better network performance than MCS 7 with 1 MHz bandwidth. Using MCS 5 obtained delay value of 0.241761 s on average, the throughput value of 0,5648 Mbps on average, and the PDR value of 19.84 % on average.
