1. A method of communicating using proximity services (ProSe), the method comprising:
receiving, by a base station, at least one aggregate maximum bit rate (AMBR) parameter from a network entity, wherein the at least one AMBR parameter comprises a maximum bit rate that a first wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) can use for data sent on one or more ProSe bearers;
receiving, by the base station, a request from the first WTRU to establish the one or more ProSe bearers with a second WTRU, wherein the request comprises priority information of the one or more ProSe bearers determined by the first WTRU; and
sending, by the base station, an indication to the first WTRU to establish a ProSe communication over the one or more ProSe bearers based on at least the AMBR parameter and the priority information of the one or more ProSe bearers.
