IEEE BTS Distinguished Lecture

Share

This lecture discusses the opportunity to incorporate multicast/broadcast point-to-multipoint (PTM) communication capabilities in 5G as built-in delivery features from the outset, integrating unicast point-to-point (PTP) and multicast/broadcast PTM modes under one common framework and enabling a dynamic use of PTM transmissions to maximize network and spectrum efficiency.  In combination with advanced caching technologies, this approach will open a door to completely new levels of network management and delivery cost-efficiency. This lecture will introduce the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) IMT-2020 (International Mobile Telecommunication) standardization process, review use cases for PTM transmissions in 5G, and present the main technical challenges to design PTM communication enablers in the 5G radio access and core networks and to provide 5G broadcast services using dynamic network slicing.
