Internet of Things (IOT) offers a new dimension of technology and information where connectivity is available anywhere, anytime, and for any purpose. IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Network group is a standard that developed to answer the needs of wireless communication technology (WI-Fi). Recently, IEEE 802.11 working group released the 802.11ah technology or Wi-Fi HaLow as a Wi-fi standard. This standard works on the 1 GHz frequency band with a broader coverage area, massive device and the energy efficiency issues. This research addresses, the influence of Random Walk, Gauss-Markov, and Random Waypoint mobility model on 802.11ah with different traffic pattern scheme are analyzed. The design of the simulation system is done by changing of node density. Based on the result, it can be concluded that the overall performance of the network with all of the parameter scenarios is decreasing along with increasing the Stations. In the node density scenario, the Random Waypoint mobility model has the best performance with an average delay is about 0.65805 s, throughput is about 0.53811Mbps, PDR is about 96.75%, and energy consumption is about 5.2530 Joule.
