Nokia Networks first to trial LTE for national TV broadcasting

Nokia Networks first to trial LTE for national TV broadcasting | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it
Nokia Networks is pioneering the technology needed to efficiently use LTE for nationwide TV broadcasting. The company is working with a range of partners* in the world’s first field trial of wide-area TV broadcasting using a single LTE frequency within UHF spectrum. In a Single Frequency Network (SFN) all base stations use exactly the same frequency to transmit TV content, which maximizes the number of simultaneous TV channels broadcast over a large geographical area in a given amount of spectrum.

OnStar's in-car 4G LTE: fast on the highway, but still needs a tune-up

OnStar's in-car 4G LTE: fast on the highway, but still needs a tune-up | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

From a public relations perspective, it was a good plan: round up a handful of journalists, cram them in 4G LTE connected cars, and showcase OnStar's new network by using it to host teleconference interviews from the beach. A good plan, but one still subject to the follies of network connectivity. After spending several hours connected to GM's "Connected by OnStar 4G LTE" fleet of 2015 sedans, I can unequivocally say it's the best LTE experience I've ever had at 70 miles per hour -- but it's far from perfect.

Report: "Half of Adult Broadband Users Now Engage Mobile Video Apps at Least Once a Month"

Report: "Half of Adult Broadband Users Now Engage Mobile Video Apps at Least Once a Month" | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

A new report from The Diffusion Group (TDG), Mobile Video Apps: User Dimensions, finds that 49% of US adult broadband users engage some form of mobile video app at least once a month, with 17% engaging weekly and 16% daily.


According to Michael Greeson, TDG President and author of the new report, mobile video app engagement is inversely proportional to age — that is, the younger the consumer, the more likely they are to engage mobile video apps. For example, 63% of Late Millennials (18-24s) report using mobile video apps at least once a month, compared with 56% of Early Millennials (25-34s), 55% of 35-44s, and 41% of adult broadband users between the ages of 45 and 54.

Verizon's comprehensive tablet strategy is leading the way

Verizon's comprehensive tablet strategy is leading the way | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Verizon Wireless is quietly building a major business around tablets, one that could help the carrier maintain its leading position as rivals undercut its prices and overcome its LTE coverage advantage. Verizon's tablet strategy has become significantly clearer during the past several months, and it's definitely an important strategy.

...

And why is the efficient broadcast of video important? According to eMarketer, tablet users love to watch video on their tablets. The firm said tablet owners increased their daily video diet from 13 minutes in 2013 to 20 minutes this year. For smartphones, those numbers were just 9 minutes in 2013 and 13 minutes this year. "As a result of the increase in tablet video viewers, the time U.S. adults spend watching video on tablets is growing faster than on any other medium," eMarketer wrote.

If You Think 5G Is All About Faster Network Speeds, You're Missing The Point | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

It’s hard to imagine a world in which our smartphones are faster than they already are today.  You can already reach for your phone, ask Google a question, and receive the answer within seconds.

The forthcoming generation of wireless technology will be even faster, but it's not just about sheer speed.


The next major network upgrade will solve one of the most aggravating problems we experience today — searching for a reliable, fast connection.

LTE Broadcast Is Not a Silver Bullet for Mobile TV And There Are Plenty of Uses for the Technology

LTE Broadcast Is Not a Silver Bullet for Mobile TV And There Are Plenty of Uses for the Technology | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

Expway, a software provider that makes the middleware for LTE Broadcast, released a study this week that makes the case for a multi-faceted strategy to deploy.


One of the main conclusions of the study is that operators will need more than one reason to deploy LTE Broadcast. “One use case rarely justifies the launch of LTE Broadcast, but the pay back can be quick – and additional, significant profits can be realized – when running various use cases at the same time,” it said.


Expway identified 14 business opportunities for LTE Broadcast that cellcos and other wireless operators could tap into. The technology offers both new revenue streams and cost savings. Expway estimates that a wireless operator with 25 million subscribers could achieve as much as €300 million ($400 million) worth of additional revenues and costs saved by deploying the technology. “It represents more than €1 ($1.35) per subscriber per month of increased margin.”

Claude Seyrat's insight:

We have received huge amount of positive feedback for our white paper. Thanks to all for your support and for your inputs.

The U.K. mobile operator believes there is revenue to be had from LTE Broadcast, but in the early stages the impetus for operators to deploy the technology will stem from network congestion.
