Content for TR 26.981 Word version: 16.0.0
The present document has been created as part of the study item on "MBMS Extensions on Provisioning and Content Ingestion". The intention is to identify key functionality of an interface from external application service/content providers to the BM-SC for provisioning and content ingestion in order to leverage all delivery methods and procedures through the interface. Mechanisms that would be suitable for delivery of multimedia content from external application service/content providers to the BM-SC should be identified. The provisioning and content ingestion interface definition should be aligned with the Client side APIs for MBMS (TRAPI) and the study on Enhanced TV Services.
The present document is a study of an interface from external content providers to the BM-SC for provisioning and content ingestion.
