By simulating the LTE network environment, the reception capabilities of LTE broadcast services were recently demonstrated.

Broadcast Services Are Demonstrated Over LTE

This demonstration relied on eMBMS technology, which allows LTE network infrastructure to be used for the delivery of broadcast services like TV.

Using evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) technology, it is possible for Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) network infrastructure to be used for the delivery of broadcast services, such as television. This capability, if utilized, could certainly impact how LTE services are offered. To first prove that this prospect is viable, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. has successfully demonstrated the clear reception capabilities of LTE broadcast services.

This demonstration made use of eMBMS technology, which enables carriers to adjust coverage and capacity as needed. Network resources are therefore used more efficiently. The demonstration relied on Anritsu’s Rapid Test Designer (RTD) and MD8430A to simulate the LTE network environment. The Samsung engineers were able to create the eMBMS demonstration using RTD’s graphical script design. It drove the execution of the test simulation on an Anritsu MD8430A LTE signaling tester.
