Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ADDRESS RESOLUTION OF MULTICAST/BROADCAST RESOURCES USING DOMAIN NAME SYSTEMS
Abstract:
A user equipment (UE) configured to receive a resource over a multimedia broadcast multicast service (MBMS) includes a processor and a transceiver. The processor is configured to determine whether a uniform resource identifier (URI) is an MBMS URI. The transceiver is configured to transmit a domain name server (DNS) query to a DNS based on the MBMS URI and receive at least one resource record from the DNS. The processor is further configured to determine at least one of a unicast location or a multicast location based on the at least one resource record received from the DNS.
