The Synchronization protocol (SYNC), which runs between the BM-SC and eNB (see [1]), was originally designed to ensure synchronized transfer of LTE Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS)user data employing the multi-cell transmission mode. The BM-SC forwards the eMBMS user data, packets, after assigning the appropriate control fields defined in the SYNC protocol. The eNB buffers the eMBMS user data and re-orders the packets so that data concerning to one service is transmitted… CONTINUE READING
