AT&T to Trial LTE Broadcast at College Football Game
AT&T recently announced plans to test its LTE Broadcast technology at the forthcoming college football championship game on Jan. 12 in Arlington, Texas. LTE Broadcast allows network operators to transmit a video signal (or other content) that can be accessed by all compatible devices in a given area at the same time without impacting network performance. AT&T said it will distribute select content from the game, such as helmet cam and other footage, via LTE Broadcast. "This trial demonstration signifies the early stages of our foray into LTE Broadcast, but we see a promising future with this technology," said AT&T in a blog post. "It could offer a variety of valuable future uses such as the ability to deliver software updates to not just smartphones, but also to the Internet of Things like connected cars and other devices, as well as new one-to-many commercial services for businesses." AT&T is testing the technology with a select group of invitees. It didn't say what equipment will be involved.
