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.

EE to trial LTE Broadcast this quarter | Mobile TV around the world | Scoop.it

U.K. operator says there is money to be made from broadcasting content, especially sport, but managing network traffic will be primary driver.


EE plans to begin trialling LTE Broadcast services in the immediate future with a view to a commercial rollout from around 2016, depending on the availability of devices.

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.

Telephone companies could supplant television companies as the source of goggle-box fodder, says mobile gear-maker Ericsson as it promotes the new mobile LTE Broadcast specification.


Unlike traditional mobile phone communication, which is one-to-one, LTE Broadcast sends the same data to many people. It's a little like the SMS-type technology in GSM called Cell Broadcast which can send the same information to all the handsets in a cell at the same time.
