WiMAX networks are deployed for commercial use because of its nature high bandwidth. This requirement invokes the application level changes in Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning techniques. The objective of the broadband wireless technologies is to ensure the end to end Quality of Service (QoS) for the service classes. WiMAX is a revolution in wireless networks, which could support real time multimedia services. In order to provide QoS support and efficient usage of system resources an intelligent scheduling algorithm is needed. The design of the detailed scheduling algorithm is a major focus for researchers and service providers.
