Abstract
Despite the recent advances in broadband penetration and accessibility, broadcasting networks continue to be the most efficient way for delivering media content to large areas independently of the user density. Nevertheless, a convergence of broadcasting services into the broadband networks is foreseen. In this context, Layered Division Multiplexing (LDM) allows the joint provision of unicast, multicast, and broadcast services in mobile cells infrastructure. Despite the success of LDM in broadcasting infrastructure, its practical application in Long Term Evolution networks providing Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (LTE eMBMS) and 5G-MBMS is more difficult. In this paper, we experimentally quantify the cell-interference and its impact on the network performance and Quality of Service. Our experiments reveal that the inter-cell interference margin for LTE eMBMS is about 3 dB higher compared to traditional LTE networks. If a layered architecture is incorporated this higher inter-cell interference would cause a reduction of approximately 19% of the Enhanced Layer (Lower Layer) coverage.
