7.3.1Coverage
In a typical mobile DVB configuration, following parameters could be selected: GI = 1/8; FFT=8K in an 8MHz bandwidth. In such a case the typical coverage radius can reach 33.6kms.
With eMBMS and maximum GI equal to 33.3us, maximum radius is “only” 10kms (typical: 5kms).
This significant difference can be explained by the different origins of both systems (small cells in 3GPP case).
7.3.2Time interleaving
Maximum interleaving depth in DVBT2 reaches 250ms while in EMBMS case it is only 1ms. Latency constraint of unicast mode is clearly a limit for time interleaving here.
Subcarrier spacing is clearly higher in 3GPP case (typically 15kHz versus 1.116kHz in DVB case); then it leads to a greater resistance to Doppler for DVB system (3kHz for 3GPP system versus about 220Hz for DVB).
7.3.4Channel estimation limits
Nyquist limits in terms of Doppler and SFN can be defined with the following equations:

For the DVB case, pilot patterns are optimized in terms of SFN and delay spread but lead to quite “low” resistance to Doppler; for 3GPP case pilot pattern is over dimensioned (at least in frequency) and then density could be decreased.
7.3.5Throughput

In DVB case with PP1, 16 P2 symbols, a frame closing symbol, frame duration reaches 99.904ms (L_{data} = 874). Assuming 16K codewords, 83 LDPC blocks can be mapped on the frame, leading to a throughput of 5.57Mbps. In a more realistic situation for DVB (8K, GI = 1/8, BW = 8MHz, PP2, frame size still ~100ms), throughput is slightly more than 5Mbps.
In 3GPP case, assuming an overhead of about 30%, throughput can be estimated to 4.8Mbps (5.49Mbps if only 20% overhead is considered).
Reachable throughputs are then comparable, even if the required signal to noise ratio is different due to far different time interleaver depths.

EMBMS is not defined in usual DVB bandwidths 6, 7 and 8MHz. In order to cover these cases in an easy way, it is possible to start from 10MHz case, while modulating fewer carriers than in the original 10MHz case. The following figures can be derived:

 7.4.2Frame size
An LTE radio frame has duration of 10 ms. DVBT2 Future Extension Frame, likely to embed DVBNGH standard, can have duration up to 250 ms. So it is possible to include multiple EMBMS frame in a DVBT2 FEF.
