Qualcomm and Ericsson Show LTE Broadcast - eMBMS

Qualcomm and Ericsson are demonstrating LTE Broadcast based on the evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) platform.

LTE Broadcast is a point-to-multipoint system that promises resource-efficient, scalable delivery of high-bandwidth, high-demand live, premium and software content.

Ericsson said eMBMS has the potential to significantly reduce operators’ costs by allowing them to optimize content and software distribution using broadcast principles over LTE networks. The system could also be used to schedule broad distribution of software upgrades during off-peak hours or dynamically increase network capacity during peak demand occasions, such as high-density live events like stadium sporting and music concerts.
