This TR analyzes the feasibility and applicability of using multicast bearers (e.g. MBMS) in the context of IMS-based applications. This study item captures the results of the technical considerations and solutions for transporting IMS services over multicast bearers with a focus on the possible enhancements to IMS functionalities and relevant charging, security and service provision procedures.

A brief summary of considerations include:
  • Signalling procedures of multicast enabled IMS services should be analyzed based on the grouped communication scenarios and possible optimisations to the delivery mechanisms should be investigated.
  • Charging and policy control procedures according to the PCC architecture.
  • Service provision procedures both in network elements and UEs.
  • Possible security requirements to multicast enabled IMS functionalities and bearer service entities.
  • Real-time QoS requirements e.g. delay, interruption.
  • UE capability requirements.
