5G Broadcast, TV 3.0


The evolution of the evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) to the Further evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (FeMBMS) in Release 14 of 3GPP enabled broadcast transmission in a format 100% dedicated to user devices. As a result, the 5G standard for cellular networks expanded and began to be quoted in the broadcasting sector as 5G Broadcast. This standard is one of the quoted ones to integrate the TV 3.0 architecture in Brazil, being responsible for the physical layer. To be possible, this technology must meet some requirements, such as negative noise carrier ratio, MIMO antennas and channel bonding. In order to complement the tests carried out by the SBTVD Forum, this paper aims to evaluate and discuss the SNR and minimum signal level tests using an Open-Source receiver called 5G-MAG that is managed by the group of the same name. The tests were carried out using a Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) Software Defined Radio (SDR) reproducing I/Q file with 5G Broadcast data with a bandwidth of 6MHz, the width of interest of the Forum, to transmit the signal via GNU Radio software and another USRP SDR as a receiver, having as interface the 5G-MAG.
