Recently, a point-to-multipoint transmission is a promising technology in the limitation of wireless resources and surging of subscribers, and an optimal to deliver real-time streaming service such as video/audio conference, digital live cast, and so on. There are two types of point-to-multipoint transmission; broadcast and multicast. Broadcast services deliver the information to all receivers in a cell and multicast services deliver the information to a multicasting group. Traditional approaches to multicast services operate by radiating transmission power with the lowest modulation level and coding rate which may be much lower than the lowest acceptable rate for all the multicast subscribers of a multicasting group.
