Executive Summary

Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (MBMS) epitomizes the increasing popularity of enhanced end-user experience in Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), since it allows the economical delivery of multimedia services to a large number of users. MBMS multicast supports both Point-To-Point (PTP) and Point-To-Multipoint (PTM) modes in order to confront the strict resource limitations in wireless environments and improve efficiency during data transmission. The aim of this paper is to highlight the performance enhancements of MBMS multicasting over the High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and underline the need for its integration in MBMS specifications.
