Performance Evaluation of Multicast Video Streaming over WiMAX
The demand for mobile multimedia streams has been increasing in the past few years. Multimedia streams can be delivered to mobile devices over a variety of wireless networks, including 3G (Third Generation mobile communication standards), WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network technologies based on IEEE 802.11 set of standards) and WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access IEEE 802.16 standard) networks. The paper deals with multicasting of scalable video streams over WiMAX networks. The main goal is to perform video streaming over WiMAX networks.
