Executive Summary

This paper proposes a power control mechanism for the efficient radio bearer selection in the Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Service (MBMS) framework of Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). The selection of the most efficient transport channel in terms of power consumption is a key point for MBMS enabled UMTS networks, since a wrong transport channel selection for the transmission of the MBMS data could result to a significant decrease in the total capacity of the network. Different UMTS transport channels and power saving techniques are examined and an algorithm that selects the most efficient combination of the above parameters is proposed.
