Title: RELAYING OF BROADCAST/MULTICAST DELIVERY FROM A RELAY UE TO A REMOTE UE
Abstract:
A relay user equipment (UE) device transmits, to a base station, a first Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (MBMS) Interest Indication message, which includes information indicating that the relay UE device is operating in a relay mode on behalf of a remote UE device. In response to the MBMS Interest Indication message, the base station provides broadcast/multicast information to the remote UE device via the relay UE device. In some cases, control information is provided to the remote UE device via the relay UE device. In other cases, an MBMS service of interest is provided to the remote UE device via the relay device. The manner in which the broadcast/multicast information is delivered can be determined by the remote UE device or the relay UE device.
