For Fixed Wireless Network Operators
With LTE Broadcast, Fixed Wireless Network Operators can increase revenue by proposing their own pay TV services, in addition to Internet and telephone, instead of overloading their spectrum with OTT services from others.
With LTE Broadcast, Fixed Wireless Network Operators can double the number of subscribers, with no spectrum investment!
Spectrum Capacity Gains
LTE Broadcast reduces considerably the amount of 4G or 5G spectrum needed to broadcast the most popular shows leaving enough bandwidth for the less popular content, On-Demand videos, Internet access and voice.
How Expway Helps
Our knowledge of the ecosystem, and partnerships with key EPCs and Set-Top-Box providers, makes us the ideal partner for Fixed Wireless Operators to start their LTE Broadcast journey and offer Pay-TV services as a key differentiator.
Prime Time Decrease
During prime time, when most households are watching popular TV shows, and TV viewership is up 30% over down time, the network becomes saturated - leaving no room for voice and Internet. With LTE Broadcast, network usage can decrease to 57%.
Peak Time Reduction
During peak times, when a majority of subscribers want to watch the same sports game, newscast, or TV episode, the bandwidth required surpasses the available spectrum - just when people need it! With LTE Broadcast, network usage can be reduced to 25%.
