Advanced Multicast and Broadcast Content Distribution in Mobile Cellular Networks
—Recently 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project) has standardised MBMS (Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services) enabling broadcast and multicast transmissions over GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System). Hence it makes an efficient usage of radio resources possible. 3GPP and 3GPP2 introduced the specification of IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) and MMD (Multimedia Domain), receptively, which both are responsible for resource, admission and charging control. It allows for cost efficient and flexible provision of enriched multimedia services over IP networks. Up to now the controlling IMS and MBMS are separated subsystems sharing no common interfaces. This paper introduces both systems and depicts ongoing standardisation activities regarding their interworking. Finally, it proposes a service provision architecture and describes required signalling flows which enable the provision of multicast streaming using the MBMS specifications ...
