eMBMS makes broadcast and multicast possible, at LTE networks
Today’s point-to-point mobile communications system is inefficient in dealing with heavy data traffic.
For example, when the number of people in the same area simultaneously downloading the same data increases, the quality erodes, videos freeze and even connections may drop.
eMBMS makes it now possible to unclog this data pipeline. It allows the carrier to transmit even HD-quality video only once to millions of users simultaneously! eMBMS is a new revenue-generating tool for the carrier, and it allows them to also save in the network costs.
Expway’s eMBMS Products include Device Middleware, DASH Video Player, and a BM-SC Server.
Expway's eMBMS Solution is the 5th generation of the company's software. The previous versions have been deployed at more than 10 million smart phones and tablets today.
The solutions we provide to Mobile Operators enable them to broadcast content at LTE networks, and Device Manufacturers' devices to decode and receive LTE Broadcast streams.
The reasons why Operators and ODMs prefer Expway’s solution:
- The Middleware is modem-agnostic and is already integrated with several major LTE chipsets
- As the company provides both the server and the middleware, this secures the initial launch of their service
- New features’ introduction is straight forward, thanks again to Expway’s end-to-end approach
- Expway’s extensive experience in Mobile Broadcasting helps operators in implementing best practices.
The eMBMS Device Middleware  controls the eMBMS LTE modem, receives and decodes the eMBMS streams. It stores or displays the received content through a separate Video Player. It also provides comprehensive APIs that can be used by the application.
The eMBMS DASH Video Player resides next to the Middleware and is used to play all unicast and broadcast video streams compatible with the DASH standard. It uses devices hardware decoding for best performance.
The eMBMS BM-SC Server  handles the service layer at the eMBMS network, allowing the Carrier to push files and delivers live TV streams, from its head-end to the LTE network, by using broadcast.
