It is well known that the evolution of 4G-based mobile multimedia network systems will contribute significantly to future m-health applications that require high bandwidth and fast data rates. Central to the success of such emerging applications is the compatibility of broadband networks such as mobile WiMAX and HSUPA, and especially their rate adaption issues combined with the acceptable real time medical quality of service requirements. In this paper we address the relevant challenges of cross layer design requirements for real time rate adaptation of ultrasound video streaming in Mobile WiMAX and HSUPA networks. A comparative performance analysis of such approach is validated in two experimental m-health test bed systems for both Mobile WiMAX and HSUPA networks. The experimental results have shown an improved performance of Mobile WiMAX compared to the HSUPA using the same cross layer optimisation approach.
