Receiver software is increasingly complex. In order to guarantee the functionality of a receiver as well as increasing its functionality once deployed in the field a software update service is required. The present document specifies a standard mechanism for signalling a software update service and the means to carry the data for such a software update service. It builds on ISO/IEC 13818-6 , ETSI TS 101 162  and ETSI EN 300 468  for signalling and ETSI EN 301 192  for data carriage.
The present document does not define the mandatory character of this protocol in a specific context, and it does not exclude the use of proprietary mechanisms for doing a software update. This allows a network to support horizontal market model receivers (e.g. MHP receivers). Equally it allows receivers requiring a software update service to be deployed in a network independent way.
