Sequans’ technology on stage live today at the Indy 500 in the LTE Multicast demo of Verizon Wireless
May 25, 2014

Verizon Wireless is conducting a live demonstration of its LTE Multicast service today at the Indy 500 and Sequans’ technology is part of it.  The Indy 500 is the perfect stage to demonstrate the power and value of LTE Multicast technology.  Verizon has set up a series of cameras deployed trackside and in-car to capture the cars, as well as driver perspectives, as they race around the Oval.  This exciting content is being delivered over LTE Multicast to demo tablets powered by Sequans’ LTE eMBMS-capable chips and middleware from Expway.

The advanced capabilities of LTE Multicast give a high-definition, rich video experience to viewers, real time.  The demo is running over Verizon’s commercial 4G LTE network and today, on race day, the content streamed to the tablets will include live video from the actual race broadcast, showing how live sporting events provide an ideal backdrop to show the powerful one-to-many broadcast capabilities of LTE Multicast.

Sequans has been working with Verizon Wireless on LTE Multicast for quite awhile and this is the second time Sequans has been involved providing technology for a live public LTE Multicast demonstration.  The first was at the Super Bowl earlier this year, where Verizon streamed NFL content to Sequans-powered tablets in a similar demonstration.
