These trials showed its LTE CA technology increased efficient utilization of frequencies, enabling mobile operators to use non-contiguous blocks of spectrum in multiple frequency bands to achieve higher bandwidths to meet growing demand for wireless broadband services. ?The LTE CA technology would translate to improved data rates and broadband capacity for Globe wireless broadband network and result in high-speed mobile data access. This helps address the demand for? data-heavy multimedia applications which are becoming more and more popular. This means that our customers will experience faster data connectivity in areas where this will be implemented as LTE CA becomes commercially available in the near future,? said Emmanuel Estrada, Globe head of network technologies strategy. LTE CA has an average throughput of around 220 Mbps with a total 20 MHz of spectrum and initial tests conducted by Globe in April this year showed a maximum speed of up to 230 Mbps, Estrada said. Meanwhile, LTE eMBMS (evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service) technology paves the way for the efficient delivery of video and multimedia services over a telco?s LTE network. Growing popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices has led to customer preference for mobile multimedia and video service. However, multimedia applications require large bandwidths and generate large amount of data traffic, quickly exhausting bandwidth resources of mobile operators. The LTE Broadcast solution addresses such challenges as it enables transmission of live video contents to a large number of users without using huge amount of network resources, Estrada said. ?The technology enables a more efficient use of a mobile operator?s bandwidth resources, allowing customers to enjoy seamless video services in a wireless communication network,? Estrada said. For mobile live TV watching on smartphones and tablets, LTE eMBMS works by simply downloading its Live TV Apps and also by using an eMBMS capable device or smartphone.? LTE eMBMS will be commercially available within 2015 in select areas, he added.]]>
