This paper addresses the radio resource management of multicast transmissions of video streaming services in the emerging 5G-Satellite systems. A subgroup-based approach is used to split any multicast group into subgroups. This allows an effective exploitation of multi-user diversity according to the experienced channel conditions and the achievement of a high throughput level. The main drawback is the high computational cost usually related to the selection of the optimal subgroup configuration. In this paper, we propose a low-complexity subgroup-based algorithm that achieves performance close to optimum. Our solution is suitable for implementation in practical systems, such as Satellite-Long Term Evolution (S-LTE), since the computational cost does not depend on the multicast group size and the number of available resources. Through simulations conducted in different radio propagation and multicast group environments, the effectiveness of our proposed scheme is assessed.

Abstract

This paper addresses the radio resource management of multicast transmissions of video streaming services in the emerging 5G-Satellite systems. A subgroup-based approach is used to split any multicast group into subgroups. This allows an effective exploitation of multi-user diversity according to the experienced channel conditions and the achievement of a high throughput level. The main drawback is the high computational cost usually related to the selection of the optimal subgroup configuration. In this paper, we propose a low-complexity subgroup-based algorithm that achieves performance close to optimum. Our solution is suitable for implementation in practical systems, such as Satellite-Long Term Evolution (S-LTE), since the computational cost does not depend on the multicast group size and the number of available resources. Through simulations conducted in different radio propagation and multicast group environments, the effectiveness of our proposed scheme is assessed.
