ProSe – Proximity-based services
ProSe is an enabling technology for LTE for Public Safety. ProSe features consist of ProSe discovery (direct or EPC-level) and ProSe Direct Communication (using E-UTRAN or WLAN direct). With respect to ProSe Discovery, this identifies that ProSe-enabled LTE mobiles are in proximity to one another. ProSe Direct Communication enables establishment of communication paths between two or more ProSe-enabled UEs that are in direct communication range. The ProSe Direct Communication path could use E-UTRAN or WLAN.
