LTE Broadcast eMBMS report July 2019.

  • 41 operators are known to have been investing in eMBMS
  • 5 operators have launched some sort of commercial service using eMBMS
  • GSA has identified 69 chipsets supporting eMBMS, and 59 devices

Interest in LTE Broadcast (eMBMS) has continued to grow slowly in the six months since the last edition of this report. While no new operators have launched commercial services using eMBMS, some of those that had already done so have been expanding their use of the technology and at the same time, there has been increasing interest and attention paid to use of broadcast technologies in 5G networks

The chipset ecosystem has evolved to the point where device manufacturers have a choice of chipsets offering eMBMS support. There remains a steady number of LTE-Broadcast-capable chipsets and modules being released and slowly, the range of devices is expanding too. Notable chipset releases in recent months have been Mediatek’s Helio P35, and various Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platforms including most recently, its Snapdragon 855+ Mobile Platform, plus the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Note 9 phones to the list of those devices supporting eMBMS.
