A model of streaming video traffic from a streaming server to an end user is proposed. It mimics the codec output (video frames) segmentation into RTP (real time protocol) packets, transmission from the streaming server and reception of packets by the end user. The intention is to use the model in the performance analysis of radio networks. The level of detail is chosen to support the performance analysis of the transport of RTP packets from server to user. The model is based on measurements of H.263 encoded video at various bitrates. The bitrates and the codec settings are chosen to be suitable for mobile access.
