MCE – Multicell/Multicast Coordination Entity
The MCE forms part of the overall MBMS (Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service) and is responsible for the coordination of radio resources at the cell site. As such, an MBMS capable eNB (evolved Node B) must include an MCE as part of its functionality, or be in communication with a standalone MCE. Responsibilities of the MCE include admission control and allocation of radio resources related to eMBMS services.
