Comprehensive 5G Broadcast solution at IBC2019

Rohde & Schwarz offers FeMBMS support

The Rohde & Schwarz solution for the 5G Broadcast transmission consists of the core network functionality provided by the new R&S BSCC broadcast service and control center and R&S Tx9 transmitters, which support FeMBMS. This covers all entities and is fully compliant with 3GPP Release 14.

Media consumption has shifted toward smartphones and other portable devices, 3GPP Release 14 is enabling this by using FeMBMS (Further evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service). With 5G TODAY, Rohde & Schwarz is investigating large-scale TV broadcasts in the FeMBMS mode. Using high-power high-tower (HPHT) transmitters allows broadcasters to distribute video over 5G networks in downlink-only mode with all the advantages of classic broadcasting. This provides the quality levels known from HDTV broadcasting, low- latency live content as well as enormous spectrum efficiency and wide coverage. There is no need for a SIM card in the mobile device.

R&S Tx9 transmitters provide FeMBMS based on a unique software-based signal processing platform. The pure software-based signal processing platform gives network operators great flexibility and ideally prepares them for future signal processing requirements.

At IBC, Rohde & Schwarz is launching its new 5G Broadcast core network element, the R&S BSCC broadcast service and control center, which enables Rohde & Schwarz terrestrial transmitters to deliver LTE/5G Broadcast content. This element provides core network functionality so that network operators can distribute content over LTE/5G Broadcast. It reduces 3GPP core network entities’ complexity to meet broadcasters’ needs for a straightforward LTE/5G Broadcast experience. The overall Rohde & Schwarz solution makes it very easy to configure network parameters. Multiple Rohde & Schwarz FeMBMS transmission sites can be centrally configured in the R&S BSCC core network element.
