IEEE 802.16 is standardization for a broadband wireless access in network metropolitan area network (MAN). IEEE 802.16 standard (Wi-Max) defines the concrete quality of service (QoS) requirement, a scheduling scheme and efficient packet scheduling scheme which is necessary to achieve the QoS requirement. In this paper, a novel waiting queue based on downlink bandwidth allocation architecture from a number of rtps schedule has been proposed to improve the performance of nrtPS services without any impaction to other services. This paper proposes an efficient QoS scheduling scheme that satisfies both throughput and delay guarantee to various real and non-real applications corresponding to different scheduling schemes for k=1,2,3,4. Simulation results show that proposed scheduling scheme can provide a tight QoS guarantee in terms of delay for all types of traffic as defined in WiMax standards. This process results in maintaining the fairness of allocation and helps to eliminate starvation of lower priority class services. The authors propose a new efficient and generalized scheduling schemes for IEEE 802.16 broadband wireless access system reflecting the delay requirements.
