IEEE 802.16 standard supports five different service classes in order to support different needs of the mobile users with different QoS criteria. But, this standard doesn't specify admission control and scheduling mechanisms and so far many solutions are proposed in the science world. In this paper, the authors propose priority based uplink scheduling scheme for IEEE 802.16 standard that improves the QoS performances of the five WiMAX service classes, especially of the ertPS service class. Simulation experiments and analysis are done choosing the most adequate WiMAX simulator and the ns-2 simulation tool.
