The technical field

The present invention relates to service multimedia broadcast/multicast (MBMS). In particular, the present invention relates to a method and apparatus for allowing the partial combining of MBMS services.

Description of the prior art

Currently, with the development of communication technologies, services provided by mobile communication systems with broadband multiple access, code division multiple access (CDMA), are transformed into information exchange packet service for the transmission of not only conventional voice services, but also high-performance data such as packet data and channel data, and multimedia broadcast/communication, allowing you to transfer multimedia services. To support multimedia broadcast/information exchange studies of the MBMS service in which one or more sources of multimedia data provide services for a variety of user devices (UE).

The term "MBMS service" refers to the service to transmit the same multimedia data to multiple users via a wireless network. The MBMS service enables multiple users to share a single radio channel, thereby saving the Republic is RSI radio. The MBMS service requires a large amount of resource transfer, because it supports the transmission of multimedia data such as image and voice in real time, still image and text, and can simultaneously transmit voice data and image data in accordance with a particular type of multimedia data. In the MBMS service, where the same data must be transmitted to the set of cells where users are located, the connection type PtP (point-to-point) or PtM (point to the set of points) is implemented in accordance with the number of users in each cell.

Figure 1 shows a schematic representation of the nodes participating in the MBMS service in a mobile telecommunications system.

According to figure 1, a user device (UE) 161, 162, 163, 171 and 172 represent the target device or subscribers have the opportunity to receive the MBMS service, and the cell #1 160 and the cell #2 170 are logical or geographical areas where they wirelessly transmit data related to the MBMS service to its subscribers. Cell #1 160 and the cell #2 170 are controlled by their respective nodes (base stations). The radio network controller (RNC) 140 controls the set of cells 160 and 170, which selectively transmits the multimedia data in a particular cell and controls the radio channel established to provide MBMS services. The connection between the pin is the Oller RNC 140 and the user device UE 161-172 is implemented through the management interface radio resource (RRC).

Controller RNC 140 is connected to the packet switched data network or a packet service (PS), such as the Internet, via the serving support node GPRS (General packet radio service) (SGSN) 130. Information exchange between the controller RNC 140 and the PS network is implemented by the alarm with the packet switching (PS-alarm). In particular, the connection between the controller RNC 140 and the node SGSN 130 is called Iu-PS interface. Node SGSN 130 controls the service associated with the MBMS, for each of the subscribers. In a typical case, the node SGSN 130 assumes the function of data associated with payments for the service for each user, and selective transmission of multimedia data to a specific controller RNC 140.

The network 120 transmission provides a communication channel between the Central services broadcast/multicast (BM-SC) 110 and node SGSN 130 and may be connected to the external network through the gateway GPRS support node (GGSN; not shown). Centre BM-SC 110, which is the source of MBMS data, assumes the function of planning in respect of MBMS data.

In addition, the controller RNC 140 is connected to the network circuit-switched (CS; not shown) via a mobile switching center service (MSC) 150. Network CS refers to the traditional communication network based on the access-oriented speech transmission. Information exchange between the controller RNC 140 and the center of the MSC 10 is implemented using a signaling circuit-switched (CS-alarm). In addition, the means of access between the controller RNC 140 and the center of the MSC 150 is defined as Iu-CS interface.

The flow of MBMS data is delivered to the user device UE 161, 162, 163, 171 and 172 via the network 120 transmission, the node SGSN 130, the controller RNC 140 and the cells 160 and 170. Although not shown in figure 1, the set of nodes SGSN may exist for one MBMS service, and many controllers RNC 140 may exist for each node SGSN. Each node SGSN performs the selective transfer of data to your controller RNC, and each controller RNC performs selective data transmission to the number of their cells. With this purpose, each node maintains a list of the controllers RNC to the node SGSN and the list of cells for controller RNC) nodes to which it should transmit the data stream, and then performs selective transmission of MBMS data only to nodes in the saved list.

In order MBMS data is transmitted to each of the cells that were successfully delivered to the user device UE uses different logical channels MBMS. Among MBMS logical channels, the control channel MBMS (MSN) transfers the MBMS control information that includes the type of MBMS services provided in each cell, the channel information and the MBMS information from the neighboring cells, so that the user device UE can successfully receive MBMS data. Channel MBMS traffic (MTCN) is logical is a mere channel for the valid transfer of MBMS data. Channels MSN and MTSN, when the transmission Protocol-based PtM appear on the direct access channel (FACH), which is some form of a transport channel, and the channel FACH is displayed on the auxiliary common physical control channel (S-CCPCH) before physical transfer. In one cell, each MBMS service in the General case is shown on various channels MTCN and channels MTSN can be displayed on a single channel S-CCPCH by multiplexing time division (TDM). If multiple MBMS services displayed on a single channel S-CCPCH, the user device UE useless spending power to accept unwanted services.

To solve this problem 3GPP (Group partnership in designing systems of the third generation) defines the logical channel, called channel planning MBMS (MSCH)displayed on channel S-CCPCH, and includes a channel MSCH scheduling information for the MBMS services that are included in the channel S-CCPCH, so that the user device UE can in a selective manner to receive the desired service.

In principle, the WCDMA system can achieve a win in the sense of using the transmission power and radio resources by combining data of the same content transmitted from the different cells, and it can also be used for MBMS services. If one physical channel equivalent in content physical the dedicated channel, transferred from another physical cell, the physical channels received from two cells, can be combined with each other at any point in time. This combination is called a "complete pack". However, if the data in the two channels are partially equivalent, may be combined only the matching part, and this option is defined as "partial combination.

In case of MBMS services, because the channel S-CCPCH transmitted from multiple cells exposed to various planning, user device UE to partially combine data only in the period where the service is of interest, among the MBMS services that are included in the channel S-CCPCH. Therefore, different channel S-CCPCH transmitted from multiple cells, require effective way to perform partial combination in accordance with the relevant plan.

Detailed description of exemplary embodiments of the invention

Various exemplary embodiments of the present invention is described below in more detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. As noted above, in the drawings, same or similar elements are denoted by the same reference positions, even if they are depicted in different drawings. In the following summary, detailed description of known functions and configurations that are included in this review, omitted for brevity.

One of the sample purposes of the present invention is specifically to inform the user device UE on the partial combinable MBMS services to a user device UE could partially be combined signals of MBMS services transmitted from multiple cells that were exposed to various planning. I have side pass their physical channels, namely, the channel S-CCPCH using different codes. The channel S-CCPCH include TDM-multiplexed channels MTCH related to many of MBMS services in a variety of planning.

Therefore, the controller RNC responsible for planning channels MTCH for each cell, planning channels MTCH mapped to each cell, namely each channel S-CCPCH, for MBMS services and informs the user device UE about combinable MBMS services in accordance with the plan. The term "combining of MBMS services" refers to services that are transmitted from different cells with the same content within the same period of time.

Below is a detailed description of the structures of the channel S-CCPCH for transmission of MBMS services, partially combined user device UE.

The first rough version of the implementation

The first rough version of the implementation provides, for each MBMS service transmitted from one cell, partial combinable information indicating partly combinable physical channels of other cells for user devices UE located in the cell through the channel MSN transmitted from a cell.

Figure 2 presents a diagram illustrating the structure of the channel in accordance with the first exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 2, in the cell #1 20, which is the main cell, the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH1, and have the cell #2 202 and the cell #3 203 adjacent to the cell #1 201. In the cell #2 202 and the cell #3 203, when the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH2 and channel S-CCPCH3, partial combinable information between channel S-CCPCH1 and other physical channels is transmitted to the user device UE located in the cell #1 201, through the channel MSN. Information channel MSN cell #1 201 includes partially combine information and scheduling information channel MSCH indicating the position of the channels MSCH 211 and 251 shown on channel S-CCPCH1.

Partially combined information indicates that the channel is S-CCPCH1 cell #1 201 is combined with the channel S-CCPCH2 for services #1, none of the physical channels cannot be combined with channel S-CCPCH1 for services #2, and channel S-CCPCH1 combined with channel S-CCPCH2 and channel S-CCPCH3 for #3. As only partial combinable information transmitted channels MTSN 221 and 281 relating to the service #1, channel S-CCPCH1, combined with channels MTSN 222 and 282 channel S-CCPCH2, respectively, in accordance with partial combinable information, and channels MTSN 241 and 271 relating to the service #3, channel S-CCPCH1, combined with channels MTSN 242 and 272 channel S-CCPCH2 and channels MTSN 243 and 273 channel S-CCPCH3, respectively. However, the channels MTSN 231 and 261, related to the service, #2, identified as not ombinarea service, not combinable with any other channels. Here the combination of channels MTSN" refers to the combining of the signals of MBMS services transmitted on each channel MTSN. In this description, the combination of channels MTSN has a value of combining signals of MBMS services or combining of MBMS data.

In Table 1, graph MSCH" and "information combinable MBMS services are information for the partial combination. A brief description of each field is provided below. Graph MSCH" indicates the position in the channel S-CCPCH, which is the channel MSCH. For example, if this field is set to "64", this means that the channel MSCH is transmitted in the current cell when the 6 lower bits of the numbers of system frame (SFN) become "0".

"Information combinable MBMS services" specifies the services, partially combined with other cells of the MBMS services that exist in each channel S-CCPCH, and the ID of the MBMS services" and "auxiliary channel SSRS in other cells, which are lower informational items information combinable MBMS services"specifically indicate whether each service MBMS be combined with channel S-CCPCH other cells. Although in Table 1 are not shown, since in principle only one MBMS service is displayed on one RB, "information combinable MBMS services may exist under the "RB information list".

"Auxiliary channel SSRS in other cells" includes the channel ID of the S-CCPCH"indicating at least one channel S-CCPCH, combiner the text for the ID of the MBMS services" and "type L1-combining". Type L1-combining" specifies information for selecting one of the channel combining or programmable combination, if both are available at level 1 (L1), which is the physical layer. If "type L1-combining" is absent, the selective combining is performed at the level 2 (L2).

ConditionExplanation
CV-RefSure there is, if you specify a reference sCCPCH. Otherwise, it is ignored.

As described above, the scheduling channels MTSN displayed on each channel S-CCPCH is accomplished by controller RNC. Controller RNC plans to channels MTSN displayed on each channel S-CCPCH in such a way that the channels MTSN for combinable MBMS services are located in the same periods in different channels of the S-CCPCH. That is, as described above, partial combinable information Table 2 indicates that for the services is guy #1 channel S-CCPCH1 main cell #1 201 can be combined with channel S-CCPCH2 cell #2 202. Then the controller RNC performs scheduling in such a way that the channels MTSN 221 and 281 for services #1, the portable channel S-CCPCH1, and channels MTSN 222 and 282 for services #1, the portable channel S-CCPCH2 are in the same periods. Similarly, channels MTSN 241, 271, 242, 272, 243 and 273 for services #3 are arranged in the same periods in all channels S-CCPCH1, S-CCPCH2 and S-CCPCH3.

Table 3 below illustrates an example of the information MSCH in accordance with the first embodiment of the present invention. The MSCH information includes a "shift start transfer" and "duration", which indicates the start time and duration of the MBMS service for each "ID RB". The user device detects the transmission start time of the corresponding MBMS service from the "start shift transmission, and determines the end time of transmission of the MBMS service by summing the values of duration "transfer" with the start time. Information MSCH valid for one period MSCH, and one MBMS service can interruptibly be transmitted multiple times within one period MSCH.

Figure 3 presents the block diagram of the user device in accordance with the first embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 3, at step 310 the user device wants to receive the MBMS service, receives information channel MSN comprising partially combined information is of primary cells, where it is in the current time, and determines the channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, which provides the desired MBMS service. The user device receives partially combine the information for each MBMS service, shown on channel S-CCPCH, by reading information of the current cell (table 1) and the information of neighboring cells (table 2) in the channel information MSCH. In addition, the user device receives an information element "schedule MSCH"indicates the position where the MSCH, from the information of the current cell information channel MSN and determines the temporal characteristics of the receiving channel MSCH information element graph MSCH".

At step 320 the user device attempts to receive the MSCH information from channel S-CCPCH, which displayed the desired MBMS service, in accordance with the temporal characteristics MSCH. If the user device successfully receives information MSCH, the user device waits in idle state of the communication channel at step 330 without receiving channel S-CCPCH until then, until the start of the desired MBMS service. If the transmission start time of the desired MBMS service begins at step 350, the user device moves to step 360. The start time of the transmission of the desired MBMS service can be determined from the information element "start shift transmission is in the MSCH information.

At step 360 the user device determines whether the desired MBMS service is partially combined service from partial combinable information received at step 320. If the desired MBMS service is partially combined service, the user device simultaneously takes on the stage 365 channel S-CCPCH other cells, partially combined with the desired MBMS service, some from partial combinable information, and channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, combines the signals of the services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH and then proceeds to step 380. However, if a partial combination is impossible, the user device moves to step 370, where it takes only channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and processes (demodulates and decodes the signal services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH without combining.

After execution of step 370 or 365, until the end time of transmission of the desired MBMS services defined in the MSCH information, user device waits until until it receives at step 380, the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception. The end time of the transmission of the desired MBMS service can be determined from the information element "start shift transmission and an information item duration "transfer" in the MSCH information. If it has not received the following temporary features the istics of MSCH reception, the user device returns to step 330, where it enters an inactive mode, in which not accepted any channel S-CCPCH, and waits for the start time of the desired MBMS service. However, if it receives the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception, the user device returns to step 320, where it reads the MSCH information and then performs the subsequent steps.

However, if the user device is unable to correctly receive the MSCH information, due to the deep fading or other reasons at step 320, the user device determines at step 340 whether it should combine all the signals of channel S-CCPCH to the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception in accordance with a predefined strategy. It is the process of determining whether to combine all the received signals, channel S-CCPCH in the full period MSCH between the current temporal characteristics of MSCH reception and the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception. If it is determined that the signal channel S-CCPCH should not be combined in the current period MSCH, the user device receives at step 343 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell to the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception and processing signals of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH without combining. However, if Oprah is Elena, the signal channel S-CCPCH shall be combined in the full period MSCH, the user device simultaneously takes on the stage 345 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and the channel S-CCPCH other cells to receive the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception and combines the signals of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH.

The second sample option exercise

The second exemplary variant implementation provides, for each predetermined period, a combination of channel S-CCPCH transmitted from one cell, partial combinable information indicating partly combinable physical channels of other cells for user devices UE located in a cell wishing to take the MBMS service through the channel MSN transmitted from a cell.

Figure 4 presents a diagram illustrating the structure of the channel in accordance with a second exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 4, in the cell #1 401, which is the main cell, the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH1, and have the cell #2 402 and the cell #3 403 adjacent to the cell #1 401. In the cell #2 402 and the cell #3 403, when the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH2 and channel S-CCPCH3, information conveyed through the channel MSN cell #1 401, includes information combined period that indicates whether partial comb the plan during the period of channel S-CCPCH, and scheduling information channel MSCH.

Information combined period indicates that the channel is S-CCPCH1 combined with channel S-CCPCH2 in the period And combining and channel S-CCPCH1 combined with channel S-CCPCH2 and channel S-CCPCH3 in the period From combining. In addition, the information period combination indicates that there is no combine channels S-CCPCH in the periods B and D combined. Signals services transmitted in each of the periods combined, can be combined, as indicated by the information period combination.

For example, the channel MTSN 421 channel S-CCPCH1 relating to the service #1, combined with MTSN 422 channel S-CCPCH2 in the period And combining, and MTSN 431 channel S-CCPCH1 relating to the service #2, combined with MTSN 432 channel S-CCPCH2 in the period And combining. In the period From combining MTSN 461 channel S-CCPCH1 relating to the service #1, combined with MTSN 462 channel S-CCPCH2 and MTSN 463 channel S-CCPCH3, and MTSN 471 channel S-CCPCH1 relating to the service #3, combined with MTSN 472 channel S-CCPCH2 and MTSN 473 channel S-CCPCH3. In the periods B and D combination cannot be combined no physical channels. For reference, all the temporal characteristics of the receiving MSCH not correspond to combine periods, since the channel S-CCPCH of the respective cells will vary relative to each other when planning.

Information period is ominirovaniya included in the information of neighboring cells, transmitted via the channel MSN cell #1 401.

Table 4 below illustrates an example of the information of the neighboring cell, which includes information combined periods. Information of the neighboring cell includes the cell ID"indicating a neighboring cell, and the S-CCPCH". "The S-CCPCH" includes "auxiliary information S-CCPCH", which includes information necessary for reception of channel S-CCPCH adjacent cells, "reference SCCPCH in the current cell", indicating the channel S-CCPCH possible for L1-combining, "type L1-combining"indicating multichannel combining or programmable combining, graph L1-combining", indicating a possible L1-combining, and "a list of traffic channels".

Controller RNC provides information on the channel S-CCPCH for transmission of the MBMS service in each neighboring cell using auxiliary information S-CCPCH and writes the channel S-CCPCH of the current cell, which is L1-combined with channel S-CCPCH each adjacent cell, "reference SCCPCH in the current cell". In addition, graph L1-combining" specifies one or more periods in which each physical channel is partially combined. In the case of the graph L1-combining", the values 32, 64, 128 indicate that a partial combination is possible if the Junior 5th, 6-th and 7-th bits of the element SFN are all "0", and a partial combination is impossible, if all bits are equal to "1". As another example, the controller RNC may specifically record the time for which each physical channel is partially combined, in the information element "initial SFN", indicating the start time of a possible partial combination and duration indicating a duration of time, instead of "graph L1-combining".

Although graph L1-combining" is defined in the information of the neighboring cell information is combined period in Table 4, as an example, information about combine period may also be included in the information of the current cell, as shown in Table 1 the first version of the implementation. In the second embodiment, the MSCH information equivalent to that described with reference to Table 3.

ConditionExplanation
CV-RefSure there is, if you specify a reference sCCPCH. Otherwise, it is ignored.

Similarly, the controller RNC responsible for planning channels MTCH displayed on each channel S-CCPCH, performs scheduling so that the channels MTSN for combinable MBMS services are located in different channel S-CCPCH in the same periods. Period MTSN for each MBMS service does not extend beyond one period combination.

Figure 5 presents a block diagram of a user device in accordance with the second embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 5, at step 510 the user device wants to receive the MBMS service, receives information channel MSN, which includes information about the combined period of the main cell, where it is in the current time. Based on the information MSN user device is determined which channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, where is the desired MBMS service, and stores information about combine period relating to a specific channel S-CCPCH. In addition, the user device receives an information element "schedule MSCH"indicates the position where the channel MSCH, based on the information of the current cell information MSN, and determines the temporal characteristics of the MSCH information element graph MSCH".

At step 520 the user device attempts to receive the MSCH information from channel S-CCPCH in accordance with the temporal characteristics MSCH, certain of the information of the current cell information SSN. If the user device successfully receives information MSCH, the user device waits in idle state of the communication channel at step 530 without receiving channel S-CCPCH until then, until the start of the desired MBMS service. If the transmission start time of the desired MBMS service begins at step 540, the user device is activated and proceeds to step 550. The start time of the transmission of the desired MBMS service can be determined from the information element "shift start transfer" in the MSCH information.

At step 550 user device analyzes information about combine period, and if the current time corresponds to the combined period, the user device re the result in step 565. At step 565 the user device receives the channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and combine channels S-CCPCH other cells as long as the MBMS service does not end, or until combined period corresponding to the information about the combined period, and combines the signals of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH. However, if the current time does not match the combined period, the user device moves to step 560, where it takes only channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and handles the signal services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH without combining.

At step 570 the user device determines whether there has come time of the end of transmission of the desired MBMS services based on the information item "start shift transmission and an information item duration "transfer" in the MSCH information. If it is determined that the combination is still possible, the user device returns to step 550, where it performs its subsequent stages. However, if the end time of the transfer has occurred, or the period of the combination has not expired, the user device moves to step 580, where come the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception. If the following temporal characteristics of MSCH reception is not stepped on stage 580, the user device returns to step 530, where it performs its the subsequent stages. However, if the temporal characteristics of MSCH reception received, the user device returns to step 520.

However, if at step 520 it is determined that the user device is not able to receive the MSCH information, the user device moves to step 590, where it determines whether the current time period combination, on the basis of information about the period of the combination obtained from the information MSN. If the current time does not match the period of the combination, the user device receives at step 595 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and processes the signal of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH without combining. However, if it is determined that the current time corresponds to the period of the combination, the user device receives at step 599 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and combine channels S-CCPCH other cells and combines the signals of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH.

The third exemplary option exercise

Figure 6 presents a diagram illustrating the structure of the channel, in accordance with a third exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

According to Fig.6, the cell #1 601, which is the main cell, the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH1, and a cell #2 602 adjacent to the cell #1 601. In the cell #2 602 MBMS services transmitted through the anal S-CCPCH2. Information MSN 600 for a cell #1 601 includes only partial combinable information indicating various partly combinable physical channels for each service, and does not transfer information about planning channel MSCH, namely information element graph MSCH".

Because the scheduling information of the channel MSCH not tolerated in information MSN 600, MSCH information includes information indicating when to begin the next channel MTSN appropriate, after some channel MTSN each service will end in the corresponding channel S-CCPCH. Because the MSCH information is separated in accordance with the service before be transmitted, and information MSCH to combine the two partial service is transmitted with the same content at the same time, then a third option exercise brings together not only MTCN, but MSCH, thereby obtaining gains from combining MSCH.

Partially combine information transmitted through MSN in the cell #1 601 figure 6, indicates that the service is #1 and #3, shown on channel S-CCPCH1, combined with channel S-CCPCH2 and service #2 cannot be combined with any other physical channel. The user device after receiving MTSN 610 services #1, takes his subsequent MSCH 620 and then determines the initial time next 671 MTSN 670 service #1. On lovatelli device, waiting in an inactive state of the communication channel without receiving any channel S-CCPCH to time 671, is activated at time 671 and then takes MSCH 680 next MTSN 670. Because service #1 is partially combined with channel S-CCPCH2, the user device receives MTSN 675 channel S-CCPCH2 and its subsequent MSCH 685 and combines MTSN 675 and MSCH 685 with MTSN 670 and MSCH 680.

Information of the current cell, portable on MSN, according to the third variant of implementation, similar to those shown in Table 1, except that the information element "schedule MSCH" is missing. Similarly, when partially combined information is transferred to the information of the neighboring cell before transmitted through MSN, information of the neighboring cell is equivalent in content shown in Table 2.

Table 5 illustrates a simple example of the MSCH information for each service, according to the third variant of implementation, and shows the following beginning of a transmission time and duration for each service using the information elements "start shift transmission and the duration of the transfer.

Similarly, the controller RNC responsible for planning channels MTCH displayed on each channel S-CCPCH, performs scheduling so that the channels MTSN for combinable MBMS services are located in different channel S-CCPCH in the same periods. In addition, the controller RNC controls the transmitters cells for transmission channel S-CCPCH so that they are ordered MSCH after each MTSN, and provides information MSCH moving over MSCH.

Figure 7 presents a block diagram of a user device in accordance with a third embodiment of the present invention.

According to Fig.7, at step 710 the user device wants to receive the MBMS service, receives information channel MSN comprising partially combine information from the primary cell, where it is in the current time. In this case, the information SSN does not include the information element "schedule MSCH"indicates the position where Kahn is MSCH. The user device determines the channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, which provides the desired MBMS service, based on the information MSN, and determines other channel S-CCPCH, in which the desired MBMS service is combined, based partly combinable information.

If the user device is unable to receive the MSCH information, the user device continuously receives at step 720 channels MTSN displayed on channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, until, until you begin to be desired MBMS service. At step 730 the user device determines that the detected whether the desired MBMS service. After detection of the desired MBMS service user device accepts all MTSN displayed on the MBMS service. At step 740 the user device reads MSCH following MTSN, thereby determining the start time of the next transmission for the desired MBMS service. Because the user device could be considered MTSN desired service MBMS channel S-CCPCH other cells at stage 730, the user device processes the signals service MBMS channel MTSN read from channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell without combining.

At step 750 the user device, a pending inactive communication channel without receiving channel S-CCPCH, is activated at the time of the beginning of the next paragraph is passing and starts receiving the next MTSN, displayed on the desired MBMS service, and his subsequent MSCH through channel S-CCPCH. After you start taking the next MTSN user device determines at step 760 whether the desired MBMS service is partially combined, based on partially combine the information received at step 710. If the desired MBMS service is partially combined, the user device simultaneously takes on the stage 770 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and the channel S-CCPCH other cells, partially combined with the desired MBMS service, until then, until the end of transmission of the desired services, and combines the signals of the services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH. However, if the desired MBMS service is not partially combined, the user device receives at step 780 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and processes the signal of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH without combining. The end time of transmission can be determined from the information elements "start shift transmission and the duration of the transfer in the MSCH information at step 740. After the occurrence of the end time of the transmission at step 770 or 780 user device returns to step 750 for the next MTCN and MSCH the desired MBMS service.

The fourth exemplary option exercise

The fourth exemplary variations is t implementation provides, for each MBMS service transmitted from one cell, partial combinable information indicating partly combinable physical channels of other cells, for user devices in a cell, by MSCH transmitted from the cell. Therefore, the fourth variant of the implementation can independently set the partial kombineerimist in each period MSCH each service.

On Fig is a diagram illustrating the structure of the channel, in accordance with the fourth exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

According pig, in the cell #1 801, which is the main cell, the MBMS service is transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH1, and have the cell #2 802 and the cell #3 803, the neighboring cell #1 801. In the cell #2 802 and the cell #3 803 MBMS services transmitted through the channel S-CCPCH2 and channel S-CCPCH3, respectively. When services #1, #2 and #3 are transmitted in the channel S-CCPCH1 cell #1 801, partial combinable information 811 and 851 is passed through the channels MSCH 810 and 850 channel S-CCPCH1, respectively.

The first partially combine information 811 indicates that for the first period, MSCH, starting from the first MSCH 810 to the second MSCH 850, channel S-CCPCH1 combined with channel S-CCPCH2 for services #1, channel S-CCPCH1 combined with channel S-CCPCH2 and S-CCPCH3 for services #3, and there is no combinable physical channels for services #2. The second partially combine information 81 indicates for the second period, MSCH, after the second MSCH 850, channel S-CCPCH1 combined only with channel S-CCPCH2 for #2. In this way, the controller RNC can determine kombineerimist each period MSCH each service, thus, the fourth option is a higher degree of freedom of planning than the first version of the implementation.

Table 6 illustrates an example of the information MSCH according to the fourth variant of implementation of the present invention.

The MSCH information includes a list of transport channels", and "list of transport channels" includes "RB information list" for each transport channel ID". "RB information list includes a list of the periods of transmission" for each "ID RB". List periods of transmission" additionally includes information element secondary CCPCH channels in other cells, indicating partially combine information in addition to the "start shift transmission and the duration of transmission". If the MBMS service corresponding to the ID RB is partially combined, this information element is not included.

The user device determines whether the desired MBMS service is partly combinable, not using the information MSN, but using partially combine the information for each service received from the MSCH information. Similarly, the controller RNC responsible for planning the channels MTSN displayed on each channel S-CCPCH, performs scheduling in such a way that the channels MTSN for combinable MBMS services are located in different channel S-CCPCH in the same period. In addition, the controller RNC provides information MSCH transferred on MSCH, transmitters cells for transmission channel S-CCPCH.

Figure 9 presents a block diagram of a user device in accordance with the fourth embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 9, at step 910 the user device wants to receive the MBMS service, receives information channel MSN from the primary cell, where it is in the current time, and determines the channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, which provides the desired MBMS service. The user device according to uchet information element graph MSCH", indicates the position where the channel MSCH, from the information of the current cell information MSN and determines the temporal characteristics of the receiving channel MSCH information element graph MSCH".

At step 920 the user device attempts to receive the MSCH information from channel S-CCPCH, which displays the desired MBMS service, in accordance with the temporal characteristics of MSCH reception. The MSCH information includes partially combine the information for each service. If the user device successfully receives information MSCH, the user device waits in idle mode communication channel without receiving channel S-CCPCH, until then, until the start of the desired MBMS service, at step 930. If the transmission start time of the desired MBMS service begins at step 950, the user device proceeds to step 960. The transmission start time of the desired MBMS service can be determined from the information element "shift start transfer" in the MSCH information.

At step 960 the user device determines whether the desired MBMS service is partly combinable, partly combine the information received at step 920. If the desired MBMS service is partially combined, the user device simultaneously takes on the stage 965 channels S-CCPCH other cells, partially combined the dummy with the desired MBMS service, determined from partial combinable information, and channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, combines the signals of the services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH and then proceeds to step 980. However, if a partial combination is impossible, the user device proceeds to step 970 where it takes only channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and processes the signal of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH without combining.

After execution of step 970 or 965 until then, until the end time of the transmission of the desired MBMS services defined in the MSCH information, user device waits as long as it does not receive the temporal characteristics of the next MSCH, at step 980. The end time of the transmission of the desired MBMS service can be determined from the information elements "start shift transmission and the duration of the transfer in the MSCH information. If not received timing of the next MSCH, the user device returns to step 930, where it enters the inactive state, which is not accepted any channel S-CCPCH, and waits for the start time of the desired MBMS service. However, if the received timing of receiving the next MSCH, the user device returns to step 920, where it reads the MSCH information and then performs the subsequent steps.

However, if the user is some device was unable to receive the MSCH information, due to the deep fading or other reasons, at step 920, the user device determines at step 940 whether to combine all the signals of the channels of the S-CCPCH to obtain the temporal characteristics of the next MSCH, according to a predefined strategy. If the user device determines not to combine the signals of channel S-CCPCH for the full period MSCH, the user device at step 943 takes only channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell to obtain the temporal characteristics of the next MSCH and processes the signals of the services received MBMS channel S-CCPCH without combining. However, if the user device determines to combine the signals of channel S-CCPCH throughout the period MSCH, the user device simultaneously takes on the stage 945 channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell and the channel S-CCPCH other cells to obtain the temporal characteristics of the next MSCH and combines the signals of the MBMS service received channel S-CCPCH.

Approximate structure of transmit/receive

Figure 10 presents a block diagram illustrating a transmission structure for a cell and controller RNC, in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

According to figure 10, the controller RNC 1002 receives MBMS data provided from the BM-SC 1000, and outputs received MBMS data to the generator 1012 MBMS data transfer peredach the ka 1010 cells. Controller RNC 1002 generates the data streams of the respective MBMS services to a transmitter 1010 cells based on the cell list in which it must transmit the data streams of MBMS services. Generator 1012 MBMS data transmission converts the MBMS data in a format that can be transmitted over the physical channel. Although the example shows only one transmitter 1010 cells, the same structure and operation principle can be applied to the entire set of transmitters corresponding to the set of cells controlled by the controller RNC 1002.

Controller RNC 1002 includes a scheduler MBMS 1004, generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS and generator 1008 of the MBMS control information. Controller RNC 1002 controls the structure of the channel for each cell in accordance with previous variants of implementation, generates information channel MSN and transmits the information channel MSN to user devices located in its cell. The scheduler MBMS 1004 plans channels MTSN in accordance with the MBMS services that should be provided in the channel S-CCPCH each cell, in accordance with the MBMS services generated in the BM-SC 1000, and the MBMS services that can be provided in many cells controlled by the controller RNC 1002. In this case, the channels MTSN for combinable MBMS services ordered in different channels of the S-CCPCH in the same periods.

The result of planning : what is in the generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS, where it is generated as the MSCH information, including scheduling information of MBMS. Generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS generates information display channels, including channel structure of MSCH and MTCH each cell in accordance with the planning, and provides information MSCH and information display channels at block 1014 mapping of physical channels of the transmitter 1010 cells. In case the fourth version of the implementation, the MSCH information includes partially combine the information for each service period MSCH, along with the temporal characteristics of each channel MTSN.

Generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS generates information MSN, which includes the management information relating to all available MBMS services, and transmits the information MSN to user devices via the Uu interface. In the first and third options the implementation information MSN includes partially combine the information for each individual service, as in the second embodiment, information MSN includes partially combine the information for each individual period. In all variants of implementation, with the exception of the third variant implementation, information MSN additionally includes scheduling information MSCH. In the fourth embodiment, to implement the Oia information SSN does not include partially combined information.

Block 1014 mapping of physical channels of the transmitter 1010 cells multiplexes method TDM MSCH information provided by the generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS, and MBMS data provided by the generator 1012 MBMS data transmission in accordance with the information display channel provided with generator 1006 schedule information of MBMS, and displays multiplexed data channel S-CCPCH before sending.

11 illustrates the structure of the receiving user device in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention. Shows the user device operates in accordance with the block diagrams of methods according to the options exercise of the first to fourth.

In accordance with 11, the receiver control information of MBMS user device 1100 receives information SSN from controller RNC 1002 through the channel MSN and outputs the accepted information MSN on the controller 1104 reception. In the case of embodiments, the first to the third, the controller 1104 reception gets partially combine the information included in the information MSN, and controls the receiver 1106 physical channels in accordance with partial combinable information. The power of the other receivers of the physical channels is disabled. In the case of the fourth variant of implementation, the controller 1104 reception developed is partly combinable information included in the MSCH information issued from the detector 1112 schedule information.

The controller 1104 reception defines at least one channel S-CCPCH associated with the desired MBMS service, and emits code channel for a specified channel S-CCPCH in at least one of the receivers 1106 physical channels. If the desired MBMS service is partially combined, codes of channels to partially combine channel S-CCPCH are issued in the receiver 1106 physical channels.

All sample variants of implementation, with the exception of the third exemplary variant implementation, the controller 1104 receiving receives scheduling information channel MSCH information channel MSN and determines the temporal characteristics of MSCH reception on the basis of information planning MSCH. In accordance with the temporal characteristics of the receiving channel MSCH, at least one of the receivers 1106 physical channels operates to receive at least one signal MSCH and outputs a signal MSCH in block 1110 converts the display of physical channels through the block 1108 combination. If accepted many signals MSCH, the received signals MSCH issued at block 1110 converts the display of physical channels after combining unit 1108 combination. In accordance with the temporal characteristics of the receiving channel MSCH block 1110 converts display f the physical channels generates signals MSCH on the detector 1112 schedule information. The detector 1112 information planning detects the MSCH information by analyzing the signals MSCH and provides information MSCH on the controller 1104 reception.

In the case of the third exemplary variant implementation, the detector 1112 information planning detects information MSCH every time ends MTSN. The controller 1104 determines the period of reception of the desired MBMS services based on the information MSCH.

If there comes the period of reception of the desired MBMS service, the receiver 1106 physical channels supplied code channels are to receive corresponding signals MTSN. Received signals MTSN served on the block 1110 converts the display of physical channels after combining unit 1108 combination. If the desired MBMS service is not partially combined, it only works one receiver physical channel corresponding to the channel S-CCPCH of the primary cell, and one received signal MTSN arrives at block 1110 converts the display of physical channels, passing through the block 1108 combination.

In the period of reception of the desired MBMS services block 1110 converts the display of physical channels outputs a signal MTSN block 1108 combining at the receiver 1114 MBMS data. The receiver 1114 MBMS data restores signal MTSN in MBMS data through demodulation and decoding.

From the above description should be understood is about, what an exemplary implementation of the present invention provide a partial combining for MBMS services. Sample implementations specifically indicate in the channel MSN or MSCH, which are in some type of logical channel for MBMS services, whether the signal of MBMS services combined with signals of the same MBMS service received from other cells for individual services or temporal characteristics in the Uu interface, so that the receiver combines the signals of MBMS services transmitted from other cells, thereby providing a gain in the sense of using the transmission power and radio resources.
