eMBMS transforms an LTE network
into a single frequency network (SFN) from a device perspective, to
enable broadcast or multicast of any type of content to interested
users, such as live sports events, live concerts or a news service.
Introduced for UMTS with 3GPP Release 6, MBMS was enhanced and optimized
for LTE with 3GPP Release 9. Subsequent releases added further
improvements that have attracted increased interest from service
providers worldwide. FLUTE, MPEG-DASH and advanced video codecs such as
HEVC make LTE multicast ready for prime time and can fundamentally
change the way content is distributed to large subscriber bases. This
webinar focusses on the key technical aspects of LTE multicast and how
eMBMS/MBSFN are complemented by FLUTE, MPEG-DASH and HEVC. It also
demonstrates comprehensive test solutions for mobile devices and how to
optimize deployed networks to get them ready for LTE multicast.

Attendees will learn:

  • Fundamentals of eMBMS/MBSFN in LTE based on 3GPP Release 9 and up
  • How FLUTE, MPEG-DASH and HEVC relate to eMBMS
  • eMBMS performance tests on LTE-capable mobile devices
  • How to optimize an LTE network for eMBMS

Who should attend:

and lab managers, Research and principal engineers, RF and transceiver
design engineers, Software and protocol development engineers, Network
and systems and test engineers,

Application and support engineers
