Smart tests video multicast over LTE

Friday 29 November 2013 | 01:16 CET | News
Philippine mobile services provider Smart Communications has conducted its first successful video multicast (eMBMS) over LTE. Huawei Technologies provided network equipment for the trial which used the 2.1 GHz spectrum band. For its pilot, Smart streamed pre-loaded videos on three channels from its base station in Quezon City to another base station in Makati. The videos were displayed by three LTE-capable handsets provided by Huawei, as well as a TV set equipped with a device that converts data received by an LTE Sim.
