Telstra activates LTE-Broadcast nationally

Telstra activated LTE-Broadcast (LTE-B) technology nationally in its mobile network.

Customers using Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 devices can now view HD streaming using the AFL Live Official app.

Telstra is conducting a live demo in Sydney featuring over 100 Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 devices running the app and using LTE-B.

“With the success of our AFL, NRL and Netball apps, we are now streaming live sports content to a massive base of around 1.2 million devices and sports fans consume 37 million minutes of live content over our apps on any given weekend.  This season we’ve seen an overall 58 per cent increase in customers streaming games. In some instances, more than twice the number of customers have streamed, compared to the same clash last year,” said Mr Wright, Group Managing Director Networks.

“We have invested in network capacity and continue to optimise our network to meet the demand for video sporting content for subscribers of the AFL, NRL and Netball Live Passes. Last year we announced 1.5 million subscribers and this year we are on track to see a significant increase.  Most recently, we have integrated LTE-B technology into the AFL Live Official app, which is delivering better quality video and audio experience for broadcast content, even in high traffic areas,” said Mr Wright.

Huawei's FusionNet for LTE-B Envisions 500% Gains

At Mobile World Congress, Huawei outlined its "FusionNet" next generation network architecture for LTE-B.

The company believes it can improve Cell Edge User (CEU) throughput by at least 500% with a series of multi-RAT, multi-band and multi-layer HetNet enhancements.

Huawei’s FusionNet concept for LTE-B comprises several core technologies, including multi-stream aggregation, interference coordination, traffic adaption and spectrum efficiency optimization. Existing LTE and LTE-A deployments and technologies (including CoMP and carrier aggregation) will be coordinated.

Also at MWC 2013, Huawei unveiled its Ultra Node prototype design for future mobile broadband base stations. Huawei said its Ultra Node enhances the spectrum utilization and overall network efficiency to achieve a 50 Gbps peak data speed in a single node.

Huawei also noted that since 2010 it has contributed 362 LTE, LTE-A and LTE-B proposals for 3GPP LTE standards, accounting for nearly 20% of the global total and more than any other contributor.
