MBMS packet delivery to enbs MBMS Session Control towards E-UTRAN MBMS user service provisioning and delivery MBMS Bearer Service authorization and initiation MBMS transmission scheduling and delivery Entry point for content providers transmissions 10 Nokia 2017 MCE: Multi-Cell/Multicast Coordination Entity, BMSC: Broadcast Multicast Service Center

11 Growing interest in Media mobile distribution Evidence in recent Fora and Standards activity Fora > EBU: CTN-Mobile > LTE-Broadcast Alliance > GSMA: Network 2020 Standards > 3GPP SA: LTE based TV service > 3GPP RAN: embms enhancements > ETSI: Mobile Broadcast Convergence > SARFT: LTE-based broadcast in China 5G-PPP > White paper on 5G and Media and Entertainment 11 Nokia 2017

12 embms use cases 12 Nokia 2017

13 embms for enhanced stadium experience content delivery in live events For content generation: mobile edge video orchestration 13 Nokia

14 embms for group communications e.g. in Public Safety networks LTE is the technology of choice for broadband PPDR networks Global trend to use LTE performance and economies of scale instead of current proprietary systems embms provides for one to many communication channels 14 Nokia 2017

15 Further embms applications Public warnings in catastrophees, accidents, map and SW updates, plenty of one-to-many applications exist 15 Nokia 2017

16 embms for mobile TV embms for wide area TV distribution - Mobile or even to the large screen? - Free-to-air? - Large area SFN? - Capacity? - Cost? - 16 Nokia 2017

17 Nokia considerations 17 Nokia 2017

18 MHz Spectrum use in Europe ~2015 UHF remains attractive for multiple services Licence exempt: DECT, Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz, ) Possible future mobile use: LTE (700 MHz, L- and S-Band, 2.3 GHz,...) Mobile use: GSM (900, 1800 MHz), UMTS (2.1 GHz) LTE (800, 1800, 2600 MHz) Broadcast use: FM, DAB, DVB-T Other services Higher bands around 2 GHz and above deliver capacity in densely populated area Most valuable spectrum e.g. for mobile between ~450 MHz and 1 GHz large area coverage; DVB-T as of today occupies 320 MHz, after 700 MHz repurposing 224 MHz Below ~450 MHz, antennas are too large for handheld use 18 Nokia 2017

19 LTE in broadcast band MHz: Supplemental Downlink (SDL) Supplemental Downlink = additional capacity to exclusive (FDD) band in downlink direction Complements LTE capacity for video streaming and intense audio visual use Easier to coordinate with DTT use than conventional uplink and downlink operation within the band embms as LTE broadcast technology can complement or in the more distant future even replace DVB-T for terrestrial TV distribution in supplemental downlink capacity 470 MHz 694 MHz Supplemental Downlink Uplink und Downlink Uplink Downlink SDL may provide win-win between DTT and MBB way before Nokia 2017

20 LTE SDL Demo in live TV band in Espoo, Finland, Sep Nokia

21 LTE can increase efficiency of use in the valuable spectrum below 700 MHz Integrated UHF Multimedia Network (long term Nokia vision) Digital Dividend 2 (from 2015) Digital Dividend 1 (since 2010) LTE broadcast LTE unicast UHF 700 WRC-12/15 30 MHz DL 30 MHz UL LTE broadcast for e.g. 24 HD TV channels covering the most popular programs including public service broadcast Massive capacity for non-linear content (Video on-demand, niche channels and a multitude of MBB services) Dynamic spectrum allocation between broadcast and unicast = full flexibility 21 Nokia 2017

22 LTE broadcast builds on existing infrastructure and ecosystem Digital terrestrial television > DVB-T(2), ATSC, ISDB-T & DTMB > Typically not available in smart phones and tablet PCs > High towers require coordination (e.g. Geneva 06) and can use only fractions of the UHF band in any given location > Multiple Frequency Network (MFN) or multiple Single Frequency Networks (SFN) required to cover large areas LTE broadcast > Single global standard > Widest range of devices, latest CODECs, huge number of established BTS sites > Improved UHF spectrum utilization due to small coordination distances > Single Frequency Network (SFN) for national, regional and local service areas > Cost comparable to DTT, but higher flexibility (adaptive broadcast/unicast split, interactivity) 22 Nokia 2017

23 Estimate on annual cost of DVB-T vs. LTE Broadcast distribution 160M annual spend for public broadcast vs. incremental cost of embms capacity for MNO e.g. 25 HD channels HEVC 25x 3.6 Mb/s / 1.5 b/hz/s = 60 MHz Possible range of cost Sensitivity analysis w.r.t. # base stations (enb) RF bandwidth for 25 HD channels 23 Nokia 2017

24 embms field trial in Munich 24 Nokia 2017

25 The Munich trial is part of a research project called IMB5 :Integration of Broadcast and Mobile Broadband in LTE/5G Objectives of IMB5 Create technological models for the convergence of broadcast and mobile broadband by: Testing the capabilities and limitations of current LTE embms for nationwide broadcast infrastructure Creating an optimized system architecture for embms based networks Defining input for modifications of the 3GPP standardization of embms What the project is not about: Replacement of DVB-T/T2 by LTE embms Discussing business models Tapping into the spectrum discussion 25 Nokia 2017 Public

26 IMB5- Consortium Associated Partners: This project is co-funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation (Bayerische Forschungsstiftung BFS) 26 Nokia 2017
