Qualcomm has announced the general availability of the LTE Broadcast Software Development Kit (SDK). The LTE Broadcast SDK is designed to empower software developers to create applications that harness the unique benefits of LTE Broadcast connectivity and content delivery on LTE Broadcast capable devices featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.
“LTE Broadcast will fundamentally transform the way we experience and interact with live content,” comments Raj Talluri, senior vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “The availability of our LTE Broadcast SDK will provide developers with the tools to innovate and create applications and services that will enable LTE Broadcast technology to reach its full potential. With a common API, the expansion of LTE Broadcast-based features will broaden the ecosystem, stimulate development and enhance user experiences in new and unique ways.”
Developers will be able to access a common application protocol interface (API) that can be used in all regions around the world that are trialing, testing or deploying LTE Broadcast. The LTE Broadcast SDK is the first development tool for LTE Broadcast in the mobile industry published for general availability and has been tested with multiple operators, OEMs, and application developers worldwide.
