Abstract

Multicast was introduced in Long-Term Evolution (LTE) in release 8 as the technology of the Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) and has been steadily updated in the later releases. Its prominent advantage in full resource access of each User Equipment (UE) and its prevalent signal improvement made it a popular LTE and 5G evolution technique. In this paper, we focus on the LTE Multicast Broad- cast Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) technology from the perspective of MBSFN area and its application in public safety networks (PSNs). Since MBSFN area plays a pivotal role in performance improvement and public safety incidents differ in their scales, using our state-of-the-art system-level simulations, we explore performance distributions within MBSFN area of different shapes and sizes, as well as the impacts of MBSFN area locations relative to the network. We show that the results can give an informative insight into the MBSFN area for in- coverage performance prediction/evaluation or out-of- coverage mobile base station deployments.
