Expway – Sequans Partnership Brings LTE Broadcasting Home!
Companies to bring LTE Broadcast content to any Wifi-capable device in the home.
Expway, the world’s leading middleware provider, is working with chipmaker Sequans to bring LTE Broadcast content to any Wifi-capable device in the home.
LTE Broadcast, also known as Multicast, enables efficient delivery of one video or multimedia stream to multiple users. It’s initially being marketed as a way to deliver live sports updates from arenas to those inside or outside the stadium. (See Verizon’s Multicast LTE Video to Arrive in 2015.)
Expway and Sequans have been working together on LTE Broadcast for awhile now. They were both involved in Verizon Wireless ‘s LTE Multicast demo at the 2014 Super Bowl and Orange SA ‘s demo at the French Open last summer. Miller says its chips could work on any LTE network, but it’s not yet certified for use on AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), which is also trialing the technology.
