Athonet’s LTE Broadcast solution is the simplest and most cost-effective way to deploy LTE Broadcast services to deliver video, software updates and other broadcast applications. The software solution can be (i) centralized to connect to an existing MNO network or (ii) distributed to specific locations (e.g. stadium) to create localized LTE Broadcast hotspots without impact to the rest of the network. The eMBMS solution includes the MBMS Gateway (MBMS-GW) and Broadcast Multicast Service Center (BMSC). It can be deployed in conjunction with our distributed EPC, for best user experience, or as a standalone implementation using an existing EPC. Our LTE Broadcast solution is pure software and can be deployed in native and virtualized environments.
