The Peristaltic transport of a viscous fluid in a channel with suction and injection is investigated in the present work. The mathematical modeling has been carried out under long wavelength and low Reynolds number approximation. The analytical solution for velocity field pressure gradient, frictional force and stream function in the wave frame of reference is obtained. The pressure rise and frictional force over one wavelength are obtained. The effect of different parameters on pumping characteristics and frictional forces is discussed graphically. It is observed that pressure rise decreases with increasing permeability parameter and increases with increasing amplitude. It is also observed that for various values of suction parameter k, the pumping curves coincide at a point in the first quadrant due to the suction or injection in the channel. The frictional forces illustrate the opposite behavior compared to pressure rise. The trapping phenomenon for different parameters is presented graphically
