TV Connect Award for Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast Solution
Ericsson today announced that it has won a TV Connect Award, held in London, for the company’s LTE Broadcast solution. Research from Ericsson’s 2013 Mobility Report found that mobile data traffic is predicted to grow 10 fold by the end of 2019, a spike which will be driven principally by online video. Meeting the consumer demand for TV Anywhere, on any device, Ericsson’s end-to-end LTE broadcast solution revolutionizes video delivery in mobile networks, enabling operators to efficiently launch media services over LTE.
Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast solution combines three standards: eMBMS (Evolved Multimedia Broadcast and Mulitcast Service), HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) and MPEG Dash. It ensures a high-quality user experience while optimizing use of spectrum by broadcasting video traffic over a single data stream. This allows an unlimited number of enabled users in the broadcast area to receive the content. The user only needs an LTE-enabled device with an LTE Broadcast app.
