Verizon's LTE-Broadcast shifts online video closer to the Internet of Things

Verizon LTE Broadcast antennasOne of the technologies that Verizon's go90 streaming service is helping to develop is LTE-Broadcast (branded as LTE-Multicast by the carrier), with the aim of making it supported in every mid- and top-tier device by 2017. Mobile video has provided a highly visible way to demonstrate the possibilities for LTE-B.

But as the Internet of Things begins to see many more "things" in its ecosystem, LTE-B use cases continue to arise. For example, the technology can be used in digital signage to provide faster traffic updates, or truly instant replays on a stadium's JumboTron.

Ben Munson takes a closer look at the promise of LTE-B in this FierceWireless special report.
