specifies the multimedia broadcast and multicast service (MBMS) application independent transport service and includes some guidance on application services and bit rates. This TS defines MBMS User Services that use the capabilities of MBMS. Service related information is defined in this TS to specify requirements in terms of data rates, quality of service requirements, typical volumes of data etc.
MBMS User Services may be delivered to a user at different bit rates and quality of service depending on radio networks and conditions. This TS describes service scenarios for MBMS User Services.
In addition scenarios related to security and charging are described providing information for detailed MBMS User Services security and charging mechanisms to be specified. The service scenarios described in this TS are not exhaustive, it is possible that MBMS may be used for services that are not included in this TS. This TS describes the minimal requirements for interoperability for MBMS based services. This TS establishes a basis which can also be used for future services.
This TS describes MBMS User Services that use the capabilities of MBMS. Application scenarios including charging, QoS aspects and related service requirements derived from them are described. These scenarios and service requirements can be used as guidance for the design of codecs and bearers.
