1. A method for scheduling a single-cell Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service (MBMS), comprising:receiving a Single Cell-Point To Multipoint (SC-PTM) Single cell-Multicast Control Channel (S-MCCH) message sent by an evolved Node B (eNB), wherein the S-MCCH message carries first Radio Network Temporary Identifier (RNTI) configuration information and/or second RNTI configuration information, a first RNTI corresponding to the first RNTI configuration information is used for indicating that a single-cell MBMS is scheduled by using a semi-static scheduling manner, the first RNTI configuration information is used for indicating a Temporarily Mobile Group Identifier (TMGI) corresponding to the first RNTI and a subframe position where a Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) scrambled by using the first RNTI is located, a second RNTI is used for indicating that the single-cell MBMS is scheduled by using a dynamic scheduling manner, and the second RNTI configuration information is used for indicating a TMGI corresponding to the second RNTI; and
receiving an MBMS required on a Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) according to scheduling information received on the PDCCH scrambled by the first RNTI and/or received on a PDCCH scrambled by the second RNTI.
