Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel approach for video distribution over IEEE 802.16 networks for mobile Healthcare (m-Health) applications. The technique incorporates resource distribution, scheduling and content-aware video streaming taking advantage of a flexible quality of service (QoS) functionality offered by IEEE 802.16/WiMAX technology. The proposed technique is thoroughly investigated using network simulator (NS-2) software under various real-life m-Health scenarios, which include streaming video over medium access control (MAC) layer service connections. It is shown that the technique is fully compatible with the WiMAX standard specification and allows a 9-16% increase of the overall network throughput, which is dependent upon the initial system configuration and the selection of WiMAX user parameters.
