The Framework for Live Uplink Streaming (FLUS) is an enabler for live media streaming from a source entity to a sink entity. The FLUS offers at least MTSI-based mode for media transmission. When used with MTSI-based mode, FLUS can be establish live media streaming between UEs or between a source entity and a sink entity, within and in-between operator networks. The UEs can connect to the MTSI using a 3GPP access network. Compared with MTSI, where the certain types of QoS for speech or video media used, FLUS can provide a flexible range of QoS, e.g., in the maximum delay, available bandwidth or packet loss rate tolerated. It can be also possible to operate FLUS without MTSI-based mode. In addition to providing flexible links, advanced functionalities of FLUS, such as the signalling of immersive media, can be used to complement existing 3GPP services.

The present document defines a source entity and a sink entity for the FLUS that can be support point-to-point transmission of audio including speech, video, and text. It defines media handling (e.g., signalling, transport, packetloss handling, and adaptation), as well as interactivity (e.g., adding or dropping media component during a session when the geometric range of audio visual media is changed from 180 to 360 degrees or vice versa). The focus is to ensure a reliable and interoperable service with a predictable media quality while allowing for flexibility in the service offerings.

A FLUS source entity, which may be embedded in a single UE, or in a UE and a separate audio-visual front-end, may support all or a subset of features specified in this document. When used as a generic framework, no feature or procedure specified in this document is mandated for the FLUS source entity and the FLUS sink entity. Impact on the service quality and network capacity is left to the discretion of the implementation and the service utilizing the framework. For example, configuration of media formats and codecs follows the requirements of the respective service. When offered as part of a 3GPP services, such as MTSI, the impact on the service quality and network capacity is left to the discretion of the implementation or service policy.

The specification is written in a forward-compatible way in order to allow additions of media components and functionality in releases after Release 15.
