  • Mobile broadcast/multicast video services have become highly demanded in mobile networks and require effective and low-complexity radio resource management (RRM) strategies. This paper proposes an RRM strategy based on multicast subgrouping and the scalable video coding (SVC) technique for multicast video delivery that focuses on reducing the search space of solutions and optimizes the aggregated data rate (ADR). The results in terms of ADR, spectral efficiency, and fairness among multicast users, along with the low complexity of the algorithm, show that this new scheme is adequate for real systems.
