Verizon Demos LTE Multicast at Indy 500

Verizon Wireless tested LTE Multicast services over a commercial 4G LTE network using Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast solution at the Indy Motor Speedway in the weeks leading up to the Indy 500.

During the race, Verizon LTE Multicast capabilities were demonstrated via a series of cameras deployed both trackside and in-car providing IndyCar teams with real time race visibility.

"Verizon has taken the lead by being first in the US to deliver video multicast services over its commercial LTE network in such a challenging environment. Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast solution is designed to deliver the high performance and great video experience that Verizon’s LTE Multicast Service demands at events like the Indy 500," stated Johan Wibergh, Head of Business Unit Networks at Ericsson.
