Mobile US to boost LTE capabilities with Ericsson

5G industry to be worth $1.2 trillion by 2026: Ericsson

Under the agreement, Ericsson will deliver a three-year optical transmission network and rollout plan to expand Telstra's long haul, metro and regional optical networks, supplying and installing converged packet-optical technologies from Ciena.

The call, touted as a world first, used technology based on the 3GPP release 13 standard known as MC-PTT (Mission Critical Push-To-Talk over LTE), which Motorola says demonstrates another key service Telstra can deliver on its LTE Broadcast enabled LTE Advanced Network for Emergency Services (LANES Solution). Telstra will also launch a 24/7 live streaming TV channel using LTE-Broadcast, with the stream initially only available to Samsung's high-end devices.

"Telstra's LTE-B product roadmap will include 24x7 linear streaming, live sports coverage beyond stadiums, pre-loading of popular content, news clips and games highlights".

With Telstra working with Ericsson to make certain that its infrastructure is ready for launch, the former's Group Managing Director Networks, Mike Wright, was cited as saying: '99% of Telstra's 4GX [-branded] sites are already LTE-B capable, with the intention to have nationwide enablement and coverage for LTE-B by 2018. This network creates the capability for devices like smart home gear, even smart cars to be constantly connected - using the reach of the Telstra mobile network, though without the need for a "plan" for every devices, the future will likely have us subscribing to "connectivity" across our devices rather than on a per device basis.

Session continuity allows for seamless transitions between unicast and broadcast areas during video streaming. Expway delivers content efficiently and cost effectively through the last mile, from the mobile carrier antenna to the end-user device, with consistent high-quality-of-experience. "Running this pilot in collaboration with innovative partners is a great way for us to test and learn how we can improve the customer experience while at the same time achieving network efficiencies".

The announcement comes as part of the telco's "Network of the Future" program announced overnight at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona.

Telstras LTE Broadcast capability allows PTT group calls to be delivered simultaneously to all members of a group call with high assurance, low latency and separated from regular mobile traffic. The program included deployment of Australia's largest Internet of Things (IoT) network, 5G New Radio trials, nationwide optical network transformation and expansion and the creation of a media delivery cloud complementing the Telco Cloud project.
