Existing Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) mechanisms do not take into account reliability aspects of ongoing URC (or URLLC) services effectively. Presented herein are techniques that involve enhancing or optimizing CoMP mechanisms for applications that involve Ultra-Reliable Communication (URC) or Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC) services. These optimizations can also help to support a higher Highly Reliable Communication (HRC), URC, URLLC, and other Quality of Service (QoS) -aware applications in a network. Further, optimizations are proposed to provide URC or URLLC services over a single Protocol Data Unit (PDU) session in order to save Radio Access Network (RAN) and/or core network resources by tearing down redundant PDU sessions or for user equipment (UE) devices that do not support Redundancy Handler or Dual Connectivity capabilities but still require URC or URLLC services.
