Title: CONTENT DELIVERY METADATA EXCHANGE IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A wireless communication system (100) receives device-hosted content delivery data structures (111, 112, 113) that identify device-hosted media content (121, 122, 123). The wireless system (100) transfers the data structures (111, 112, 113) to a content distribution network (151, 152, 153). The wireless system (100) receives network-hosted content delivery data structures (114, 115, 116) from the content distribution network (151, 152, 153) indicating network-hosted media content (124, 125, 126) and the device-hosted media content (121, 122, 123) and real-time data-rates for the network-hosted media content (124, 125, 126) and the device-hosted media content (121, 122, 123). The wireless system (100) receives the network-hosted media content (124, 125, 126) and the device-hosted media content (121, 122, 123). The wireless system (100) transfers the network-hosted content delivery data structures (114, 115, 116) and multicasts the network-hosted media content (124, 125, 126) and the device-hosted media content (121, 122, 123).
