From David Del Valle in Madrid
Vodafone Spain recently carried out an LTE broadcast eMBMS (Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services) trial for the first time in Spain, allowing distribution of multimedia content to an unlimited number of users by reusing the existing 4G network.
This eMBMS solution in Vodafone’s network is one of the first in Europe and the most ambitious in the world, offering 5 channels in HD (High Definition) format.
The trial took place at Estadio Mestalla in Valencia. During the match Valencia vs Celta, a selection of users could have real time access to five channels of multimedia content from the game, by using smartphones that support the new eMBMS technology.
