Huawei and Vodafone Espaa have tested, for the first time in the country, the technology LTE broadcast eMBMS (Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services, for its acronym in English), which allows the diffusion of multimedia content to an unlimited number of users, making use of the current 4G network of the operator.
This solution that Huawei has proven based on the Vodafone network is one of the first in Europe and the most ambitious in the world, as it offers 5 channels in HD (High Definition) format.
The demonstration of this innovative technology took place on May 17 at the Mestalla Stadium in Valencia. During the Valencia-Celta meeting, and thanks to the collaboration between Huawei, Vodafone and Valencia Club de Ftbol, a selection of users could access five channels in real time multimedia content about the game, through smartphones that support the new eMBMS technology.
The launch of this broadcast LTE technology for the diffusion of multimedia content, through the Vodafone 4G network, endorses our leadership in providing ambitious and innovative technological solutions, the trust of our customers and our willingness to continue contributing to a better connected world, said Jin Yong, Director of the Carrier Division of Huawei Spain.
The LTE broadcast technology reuses the current 4G LTE spectrum and allocates only a small fragment to the multicast purpose, which allows multimedia content to be transmitted from a single source to multiple receivers.
To ensure a better user experience, you only need to install an application on a device with eMBMS technology, all 4G sectors of the area transmit the same signal carrying identical content, so that the reception of the user is improved and the LTE broadcast signal is reinforced.
Using this end-to-end technology solution, in which several Huawei departments have participated, such as Wireless, Evolved Packet Core or Video Server, you can perform multichannel broadcasting of multimedia content as diverse as sporting events, concerts, advertising, emergency announcements or public safety information, among others.
Thanks to Huawei's hybrid video solution that connect with different access systems To all the contents, the LTE broadcast technology opens the door to the new concept of Video Everywhere, as a first step so that users can enjoy all these contents from multiple network accesses (fixed or mobile), through their smartphones, tablets or smart TV, among others.
