Given the strict Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of video streaming, this paper proposes a novel solution for simultaneous streaming of multiple video sessions over a mobile cellular system. The proposed solution combines a buffer management strategy with a packet scheduling algorithm. The buffer management strategy selectively discards packets of a user from base station buffer whereas the packet scheduling algorithm schedules packets of a user according to its instantaneous channel quality, average throughput and playback buffer information.
