The scheme of real time streaming video is one of the newcomers in wireless data communication, raising a number of new requirements in both telecommunication and data communication systems. This scheme applies when the user is experiencing real time multimedia content. This paper has as main target to study the performance of video transmission over the third generation cellular networks. In particular, we examine the performance of UMTS Dedicated Channels (DCHs) for real time MPEG-4 video transmission in Downlink direction. Finally, we examine if real time video transmission in conjunction with Internet traffic is applicable in UMTS radio interface.
