[LTE_425] eMBMS Protocols and Signaling

Printer-friendly PDF version

Evolved MBMS is an exciting opportunity for mobile operators to efficiently deliver broadcast and multicast services. eMBMS fits very well and can share the infrastructure that operators are setting up for LTE. This course takes a detailed look at eMBMS architecture, protocols and Interfaces (both RAN and Core) to provide unicast/broadcast/multicast services. It covers call flows (signaling messages and related parameters) for various scenarios. This course covers system access, connecting to the eUTRAN, eMBMS registration, MBMS bearer setup, eMBMS call flows, handovers and inter-RAT operations in detail.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Sketch the network architecture of eMBMS with LTE
• Describe the protocols, interfaces and nodes used in the eMBMS architecture
• Describe the LTE frame structure, DL and UL channels used to provide eMBMS services
• Step through the eMBMS call flow using LTE access
• Illustrate eMBMS registration. access operation, including security and IP address assignment
• Explain QoS implementation and enforcement for eMBMS services
• Summarize traffic operations for UL and DL
• Describe various handover scenarios and the associated signaling procedures

Intended Audience

Technical personnel in RF engineering, systems engineering, transport engineering, network engineering, network operations, and anyone seeking a more in depth understanding of eMBMS.
