Combining networks to form a composite network for joint operations in the current business context is desirable in order to limit capital and operational expenditures, but currently requires complying with existing value chains and business models. However, commonalities between the two most popular infrastructures, mobile cellular and TV broadcast, are such that a common framework for services and QoS management can be built, without the expense of starting from scratch in the design of a universal system able to connect users for communications and entertainment. This article describes such a framework that can potentially ally mobile cellular and TV broadcast platforms as one stepping stone toward 4G and the information society.
