Pre-Integrated LTE Chipset and Middleware Shorten Time to Market for eMBMS Capable Products
January 8, 2014 — LAS VEGAS, NV — Altair Semiconductor, the world’s leading developer of high-performance, single-mode LTE chipsets, and Roundbox, the leader in optimized video & data delivery for service providers today announced a partnership to provide an integrated solution bringing together Altair’s LTE chipset and Roundbox’s Services Platform and Client Software supporting evolved Multicast Broadcast Service (eMBMS). The integrated solution offers LTE service providers an effective way to lower cost per bit when delivering the same content simultaneously to multiple end users.
“Video broadcast and multicast are a key service in LTE carriers’ future offering,” said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair. “Through this partnership with Roundbox, our device customers will be able to offer the important functionality of eMBMS to their carrier customers, expanding the portfolio of services they make available to their subscribers.”
In contrast to traditional online content delivery systems, LTE eMBMS is designed to work better as the popularity of the delivered online content grows. Required network capacity remains constant even as the number of receiving devices changes, allowing user experience to consistently remain at peak levels.
“In today’s dynamic market, customers expect turnkey solutions to help shorten time to market and lower R&D investment” said Jim Nelson, Founder at Roundbox. “The combination of our market-leading eMBMS software and Altair’s versatile LTE chipset provides our joint customers with a competitive edge in the market.”
Altair and Roundbox are both participating in The International CES Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Altair representatives are available at meeting suite #306 on the 24th floor of The Venetian. Roundbox representatives are available at a meeting suite at Caesars Palace.
