Due to the costly spectrum and ever growing demand for multimedia services, it thus become important to optimize and design appropriate scheduling algorithms and channel management techniques to maximize throughput and QoS. In this paper, the IEEE 802.16e standard based mobile WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access) system is explored for the purpose of quality of service provisioning. Since the standard does not specify a specific scheduling algorithm for polling services, hence a well thought out algorithm will be of great contribution to the area under investigation.
