AT&T is buying Time Warner for $85 billion

AT&T is buying Time Warner for $85 billion | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it
AT&T and Time Warner have agreed to a merger.
Claude Seyrat's insight:

Smart phones have changed our lives - and the media/telecommunications market. As I've said many time already, the future of media watching will be centered around viewing TV, movies and other video streaming events on our mobile devices more than regular cable TV. Mobile network providers are therefore racing to own the whole value chain. First it was Comcast with NBC Universal, then Verizon with AOL and Yahoo. Now it’s AT&T with Time Warner. This is just the beginning.

LTE for Wide Area Broadcast: Nokia White Paper - GSA

LTE for Wide Area Broadcast: Nokia White Paper - GSA | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it
While the duration of time spent watching linear TV (broadcast according to fixed schedules) each day has remained steady since 2010, the amount of non-linear TV (on-demand content watched at any time) being consumed is rising and is predicted to reach more than 32 minutes per day per viewer in 2016.

LTE’s broadcast mode, LTE Broadcast (based on LTE evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service, eMBMS), can achieve these aims and provide a flexible, future multimedia system for linear and non-linear content delivery.

And LTE Broadcast is perfectly integrated in LTE, because it can be run on the same resources as (unicast) LTE from the same network infrastructure to the same devices.

Expway Demonstrates its LTE Broadcast Solutions at MWC'14 with Alcatel, Sequans, Anritsu, Ittiam and Intel!

Expway Demonstrates its LTE Broadcast Solutions at MWC'14 with Alcatel, Sequans, Anritsu, Ittiam and Intel! | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it

In few years >75% of all mobile traffic will be video. Imagine the bandwidth savings LTE Broadcast (a.k.a. eMBMS)  will then make at carriers' networks? The numbers are in petabytes when the short-tail of content is pushed to users over LTE Broadcast.


Expway is not alone in evangelizing about this technology, here’s what we are doing with few of our partners at MWC:


* * *

Expway’s Middleware powers the Alcatel-Lucent and Verizon Wireless LTE Broadcast demo, at Alcatel’s booth. Our middleware controls the Sequans LTE modem inside of the 7” Android tablet, receiving and decoding the streams for folks to watch.

Please find here the VZW article from the actual Super Bowl event.


>> Alcatel-Lucent’s demonstration at 3K10

>> Sequans demonstration at 7D76


* * *

Expway and Anritsu will present Expway’s BM-SC and Anritsu’s MD 8430A Signaling Tester integrated together, at Anritsu’s booth.

This is the first and only product today that allows operators and device manufacturers to conduct extensive lab tests, as well as certify LTE Broadcast devices for the mass market.

Intel is widening their XMM 7160 platform to support eMBMS. Through the integration with Expway, their device customers will next be able to offer the robust functionality of eMBMS to their carrier customers.


This Intel multimode chip has now “Expway inside”, and the joint demo will available for MWC visitors to see, at Intel’s booth.

Expway’s middleware now also supports HEVC, which enables our customers to save additional >50% in LTE Broadcast bandwidth. Come and see the demo at Ittiam’s booth, our video player partner on this.

As you know, Expway’s middleware powers for example NTT’s NOTTV. Today this mobile broadcast service is the world’s most successful one, grossing out $25M per quarters.

Due to the experience we have gained from working with carriers at mobile broadcast, we now get a lot of questions from operators on eMBMS business models. This is the topic on what we focus on this MWC: we have gathered material of various use-cases around the world, and look forward in sharing that with you.

Let me know if you are interested in the business models presentation, and if you have time to meet us at MWC. It would be a pleasure to catch up again. Looking forward :)
