Abstract

The deployment of heterogeneous radio networks and the deployment of Unicast Internet Protocol (IP)/Multicast IP architectures can impact the quality of services received by the users. The authors think that they will accept these quality variations if they have the possibility to choose the radio network and the transmission mode, multicast versus unicast. But, when choosing a radio network or a transmission mode, the choices of the users can be opposed to the choices of the operators managing the networks. To overcome this drawback, the authors defined a method allowing the users, the operators managing the networks and the service providers to cooperate in the selection process.

Presentation Of The Conclusions Of Our Analysis Of The Mobility Management Process And The Transmission Mode Management Process Implemented In The 3Gpp Architectures

In 2011, we studied the process implemented to manage the mobility between heterogeneous radio networks in the architectures defined by the 3GPP and we showed that it is not completely defined and does not allow users and service providers to participate in the process of selection of the radio network during a mobility. Then, we analyzed the MBMS architecture and showed that the users and the service providers do not participate in the process of selection of the transmission mode, multicast unicast versus. It is still the operator managing these architectures who chooses the transmission mode.
