Abstract

This chapter is dedicated to the investigation of IEEE 802.16, a technology that would allow efficient, reliable and affordable healthcare. More specifically, the chapter presents not only an overview of the telemedicine services and developed technologies, but also provides a detailed description of the WiMAX wireless broadband technology for efficient video and data delivery. A new technique for efficient video distribution over WiMAX networks for healthcare applications is also presented in conjunction with some conclusive test results. The theoretical work is supported by in depth software simulations using a network simulator.
