Ericsson has commented on last week’s TV Connect Award for the company’s LTE Broadcast solution in the ‘Best TV on the Move Service’ category. This award, presented at a gala ceremony, held in London on March 19, 2014, continues Ericsson’s heritage of success at the TV Connect Awards.
“I’m exceptionally proud that our LTE Broadcast solution has once again been recognized for excellence,” says Ove Anebygd, Vice President and Head of TV, Ericsson. “The industry is in the midst of a global shift towards mobility and we see LTE Broadcast as crucial in enabling high quality of video experience as this happens. Ericsson’s LTE Broadcast solution takes full advantage of our unique background and expertise in wireless and video compression, enabling operators to meet the challenges created by growth of video traffic in LTE networks, and generate new revenue streams by offering new services for mobile operators.”
Research from Ericsson’s 2013 Mobility Report found that mobile data traffic is predicted to grow 10 fold by the end of 2019, a spike which will be driven principally by online video. Meeting the consumer demand for TV Anywhere, on any device, Ericsson’s end-to-end LTE broadcast solution revolutionizes video delivery in mobile networks, enabling operators to efficiently launch media services over LTE.
