An MCVideo client and MCVideo server may use a simultaneous session as defined in TS 23.280 for MCVideo calls. The MCVideo client becomes involved in a simultaneous session for MCVideo calls by inviting, joining or accepting more than one MCVideo call, or affiliating to a group.
The MCVideo client can also still handle multiple MCVideo calls in parallel at the same time i.e. using multiple dialogs.
The simultaneous session is established during either an originating on-demand call establishment or during pre-established session establishment or a modification of an already established pre-established session or on-demand call.
It is possible to change the prioritisation while the MCVideo client is engaged in multiple MCVideo calls. The setting of the priority can be made at MCVideo call setup or by performing a modification after the MCVideo call is established. This may result in more than one media bearer.
1. The user authentication is performed as per the general user authentication procedure specified in TS 23.280.
2. MCVideo client performs the MCVideo service authorization for the user. Step 2 utilizes the results of step 1.
An MCVideo user may be authorized to use the MCVideo service from multiple MCVideo UEs as per the procedure in subclause 7.12.
If an MCVideo server receives a service authorization request for an MCVideo user who is previously MCVideo service authorized on another MCVideo UE, then the MCVideo server shall process this service authorization request as described in subclause 7.12. In the MCVideo service authorization response to the MCVideo user, the MCVideo server shall also indicate that the MCVideo user is already MCVideo service authorized from another MCVideo UE.
The MCVideo system makes use of all of the procedures for location management as specified in TS 23.280, utilising the CSC‑14 reference point between the location management client and location management server and the CSC‑15 reference point between the MCVideo server and location management server.
The MCVideo client query is used by an authorized MCVideo client to retrieve the characteristics of the MCVideo clients in an area with certain criteria. The query criteria may be a set of capabilities, or category tags, or a mix of such criterions, etc.
Figure 7.16.3-1 describes the procedure for MCVideo client query in on-network. This procedure is applicable to query the MCVideo clients belonging to the same MCVideo system as the requesting MCVideo user.
The video capabilities have been collected at MCVideo server during the update MCVideo capabilities information at the MCVideo server procedure in subclause 220.127.116.11.
MCVideo server checks whether the MCVideo user of MCVideo client A has the authorization to perform MCVideo client query. If success, MCVideo server retrieves the MCVideo clients that fulfils the search criteria. If MCVideo group ID list is included in the MCVideo client query request, MCVideo server retrieves the affiliated group members that fulfil the query criteria in each affiliated MCVideo group in the received MCVideo group ID list.
