The session, featuring Mohamed Aziz Taga, Product Manager for LTE/5G Broadcast & Transmitter Systems, Rohde & Schwarz, takes place on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, as part of the Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference at NAB 2019.

The deployment of LTE and widespread adoption of smartphones have opened up new opportunities in mobile communications for operators to consider. This can be offered by leveraging the enhanced broadcasting capabilities of LTE/5G networks via the High Power High Tower model. This overlay network approach is capable of delivering connectionless Mobile TV services via applying FeMBMS 3GPPP Release 14 allowing Lower Latency & Higher Flexibility.

Now, FeMBMS technology is capable to make broadcasters and content providers broaden their reach via improving their coverage, enhancing bandwidth efficiency and having more real-time focused applications through implementing simplified architecture and providing UHD Mobile TV services to billions of users daily via LTE/5G networks.

The Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference is designed for broadcast engineers and technicians, media technology managers, contract engineers, broadcast equipment manufacturers, distributors, engineering consultants and R&D engineers. Technical presentations consider pressing issues facing today’s media professionals, including the ongoing transition to IT and IP-based systems. An emphasis on next-generation systems throughout the media-delivery ecosystem provides the conference with a decidedly forward-looking focus.
