IEEE 802.16, popularly known as WiMAX, is one of the most innovative methods developed in recent times to address growing demand for high-speed wireless broadband networks. This paper addresses the problems concerning the delivery of video packets in video conferencing and other multimedia application services over WiMAX. Multiple competing traffic sources over a point-to-multipoint WiMAX topology is modeled. The performance analysis on the capacity of the WiMAX equipment to handle VoIP and video traffic flows was conducted. Parameters that indicate quality of service, such as, throughput, packet loss, average jitter and average delay, are analyzed for different types of service flows as defined in WiMAX.
