Abstract 2.5G and 3G cellular networks are becoming
more widespread and the need for value added services
increases rapidly. One of the key services that operators
seek to provide is streaming of rich multimedia con-
tent. However, network characteristics make the use of
streaming applications very difficult with an unacceptable
quality of service (QoS). The 3GPP standardization body
has standardized streaming services that will benefit oper-
ators and users. There is a need for a mechanism that will
enable a good quality multimedia streaming that uses the
3GPP standard. This paper describes an adaptive streaming
algorithm that uses the 3GPP standard. It improves sig-
nificantly the QoS in varying network conditions while
monitoring its performance using queueing methodologies.
The algorithm utilizes the available buffers on the route of
