TDF using broadcast to push magazines and VOD, to tablets (Expway inside!)

TDF using broadcast to push magazines and VOD, to tablets (Expway inside!) | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it

TDF wants to help the content distributors by delivering their contents in a more effective way, using push over broadcast. 


The TDF group will leverage broadcast technology to deliver content to smartphones and tablets. 


[curnote: TDF is the largest broadcast network operator in Europe with 11.000 sites]


There is not a week without a telecom operator highlighting the explosion of mobile internet traffic, directly due to the boom of smartphones and tablets.


TDF has a solution in hand, faced with this mobile network congestion. It plans to make use of its broadcast networks to help the media disseminate their content to mobile devices, tablets and smartphones. “Today, when a user looks at a magazine or newspaper on his touchscreen mobile, loading time is generally considered too long, and often he or she does not have the patience to wait until the end," says Vincent Grivet, Director of broadcasting development in TDF.


The group proposes to use the broadcast network, and at night, they plan to push media and audiovisual contents such as video on demand and catch-up TV services to the terminals. “In the morning, the user will find his newsletter or programs stored directly in his smartphone or tablet. The content is immediately available. There is no need to wait for the downloading time”, he continued. The Content providers, broadcasters and publishers, are monitoring the project with interest: "We discuss a lot with the newspaper publishers who are very active on the mobile space but often find that the customer experience is not good enough.” TDF does not work alone on this project called B2M (Mobile Multimedia Broadcast), but has teamed up with six French industrial partners: French manufacturer Archos, Airweb (mobile services and applications), DiBcom (integrated circuits), Expway (Push VOD and network specialist) Immanens (electronic media) and the “Institut Télécom”.


Cost of broadcast.


This prototype will be tested commercially after the summer 2012.The consortium has received, from the Framework of ‘The Grand Emprunt’, a government subsidy of about one third of the project, estimated at 3 million euros. Internationally, a similar system was developed in Japan by NTT DoCoMo.


Is it meddling in the backyard of telecom operators? a declaration of war? "We are not antagonistic, but we are complementary with mobile Internet networks. If we are looking at things from this angle, we are in for selling in wholesale capacity. Operators cannot be indifferent to this solution that will significantly reduce their traffic load”. Vincent Grivet explains.


TDF requires the operators to be involved in the project, estimating that it can help them manage their costs in response to massive traffic.


Is this a return of personal mobile television (TMP), which has remained on deaf ears? "No, it's very diferent. This is a different use of television, with time flow shift. In addition, the service provided is multimedia at large and not limited to television, " says Vincent Grivet.


Financially, the solution proposed by TDF is an expense for publishers. Today, they are paying almost nothing for transmission to mobile Internet networks. Consequently the resolution TDF will inevitably be more expensive, even though the economic model has not yet been conclusive. But TDF bets that one day, the price of transmission on mobile Internet networks will increase and that publishers will find their interest in its solution.

England v Wales Euro 2016 game sets new mobile data traffic record

England v Wales Euro 2016 game sets new mobile data traffic record | Mobile Video Challenges Worldwide | Scoop.it
UK mobile operator EE has revealed the recent football match between England and Wales delivered a new record for mobile data consumption on its network.

The Euro 2016 fixture was the first time the two countries had faced each other in one of the big two international football tournaments. The match kicked off at 2pm, which probably coincided with a belated lunch-hour for many fans. It was broadcast by the BBC and also streamed live via the BBC website, which will have prompted many fans to watch it on mobile devices.

The chart below shows yesterday’s data traffic superimposed on the data for a week ago. As you can see the traffic curves were almost identical until 2pm, at which point mobile data consumption almost doubled. A few people stopped streaming at half time then even more tuned in for the second half, peaking when Daniel Strurridge scored England’s late winner before quickly dropping back to normal levels.

“This was a perfect storm for mobile data usage – a huge event, with massive build up, taking place during the working day, and live streamed on a great app,” said Matt Stagg, Head of Video and Content at EE. We’ve built our 4G network to be able to deliver an amazing live video experience for our customers for events exactly like this. People don’t want to miss these big events, and a reliable, high capacity mobile network makes sure that they don’t.”

According to EE that peak was 50% higher than the previous peak, which resulted from people streaming footage of Tim Cahill’s volleyed goal for Australia against the Netherlands in the 2014 World Cup, which you can see below.

Video Player
EE also shared an update to its Wembley Stadium mobile data consumption numbers. Apparently this year’s FA Cup final topped one terabyte of mobile data in the stadium, almost double last year’s level.

Here’s some more info from EE: “The magic of the cup final fuelled a surge in picture and video posts to social media with uploads representing 31% of total traffic inside the stadium, a significant increase from previous events. Usage of Snapchat peaked at the start of the first half, as lucky fans from both sides looked to share their big day out with friends and family.

“Web browsing and video streaming made up the vast majority of data downloads during match day, with fans utilising access to video replays and match feeds via the likes of BBC Sport.

“Over 12,000 EE customers nationwide were tuned into BBC’s live coverage of the game via their mobile devices, the peak occurring shortly after Jesse Lingard smashed the winner in the 110th minute. iPhones (64%) made up the majority of devices streaming BBC’s live coverage, followed by Android (24%) and iPads (7%). Video on demand was the second most popular BBC service during the game, with approximately 3,000 mobile users, followed by live radio (approx. 2,000).”

We've known for some time now that special, live events create peaks in mobile data consumption. Euro 2016 provides another example.
