Nokia Siemens Networks Enables Live TV broadcast in China Mobile's TD-LTE Network
Mobile service provider China Mobile transmitted a live video stream of the Xiamen International Marathon to TV centers of China Central TV and Xiamen TV for live broadcasting on its TD-LTE network earlier this month on January 5. The TD-LTE network, in Xiamen, has been built by Nokia Siemens Networks with capability to transmit high-definition (HD) video and images from cameras on the move.
Nokia Siemens Networks supported the entire event with a zero bit error rate and a stable uplink throughput of 5 Mbps. According to company, in spite of the increased demand for network capacity with exceptional traffic and load conditions, there was no degradation in network performance, no packet loss and no delay during the two and a half hour live transmission of the mega event on the move.
The company deployed its Single RAN Advanced platform, based on its high-capacity Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, to China Mobile’s TD-LTE pre-commercial trial network in Xiamen. The company also provided its Liquid Core-based Evolved Packet Core (EPC) platform, including Flexi NS (Network Server) and Flexi NG (Network Gateway).
