Verizon forges ahead with new use cases for LTE-Broadcast

Both Verizon and AT&T have undergone high-profile trials to show off LTE-Broadcast as an efficient means of delivering mobile video. But, as AT&T seemingly lost interest, Verizon is still pushing forward with the technology and finding new use cases.

Verizon recently announced the formation of the LTE-Broadcast Alliance alongside kt, Telstra and EE, with the explicit goal of getting LTE-B support into every top- and mid-tier device by 2017.

As Verizon works to build the device support that will help LTE-B take off, the operator is also exploring new options outside of video for the technology, including enterprise applications and the ever-widening IoT. FierceWireless has the full story in its latest special report.
