The demand for Mobile Multimedia streams has been increasing in the past few years. Multimedia streams can be delivered to mobile devices over a variety of wireless networks, including 3G (Third Generation mobile communication standards), Wi-Fi (Wireless Local Area Network technologies based on IEEE 802. 11 set of standards) and WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access IEEE 802. 16 standard) networks. The paper deals with multicasting of scalable video streams over WiMAX networks. The main goal is to perform video streaming over WiMAX networks. Multicast routing protocol PUMA is used to achieve scalability in the network. PUMA achieves desired packet delivery ratio with variable number of nodes. It proposes an experimental setup for simulation study to multicast those selected substreams to Mobile Stations (MS) via WiMAX Base Station (BS). The WiMAX patch of NIST forum is used to carry out the simulations.
