Quectel and ENENSYS enable broadcast on LTE network
August 26, 2020
ENENSYS Technologies, a provider of media delivery solutions, has announced that its eMBMS middleware, called CubeAgent Mobile, can now be deployed in combination with Quectel’s LTE modules and dongles. Quectel’s LTE modules can now be integrated into devices, enabling LTE Broadcast features with ENENSYS’ technology.
As broadcast networks seek to differentiate themselves from competitors, evolved multimedia broadcast multicast services (eMBMS) support greater bandwidth enabling an improved user experience comprised of more channels and smoother multimedia content. In addition, eMBMS can deliver significant cost efficiencies to providers that deliver high bandwidth content such as video and audio to multiple users on LTE networks at the same time.
Integration of the ENENSYS middleware into Quectel’s EC25 LTE module family supports eMBMS features and the solution is already in use at two European customers.
“We’re delighted to be working with ENENSYS to integrate its CubeAgent Mobile middleware with our LTE modules and enable eMBMS features for broadcast networks across the world,” said Alexander Bufalino, VP Marketing, Quectel Wireless Solutions. “LTE broadcast is very different from the traditional unicast mobile propositions so we’re excited to be opening up huge new opportunities for broadcast network providers with the integrated features that our modules and the ENENSYS middleware enable.”
“Video has experienced explosive growth in the past few years on the mobile network,” stated Bartolo Scanavino, ENENSYS Telecom Market Director. “Adopting eMBMS for the delivery of Live Video as well as software updates can help service providers to improve the quality of experience for their subscribers.”
