Verizon to use LTE Multicast during Super Bowl XLVIII


According to Engadget Verizon is now displaying their Multicast service, which allows live content to be streamed to many different Verizon devices. Traditional LTE services could have service interruptions while trying to stream where Multicast gives customers an uninterrupted video feed regardless of the number of devices using service. Verizon plans to flip the switch on Multicast in the first half of 2014 and a demo is available in New York City this week at Verizon’s Bryant Park booth running on a Galaxy Note 3. On the demo Verizon is broadcasting video at 1.8Mbps with a data feed relayed at 750Kbps and Multicast streamed content might not count against your data cap as long as you have a subscription in place.

Poor 4G LTE Signal? Get a 4G LTE repeater

Carriers looking to replace telephone numbers with an Internet Protocol address in the future

Voice-over-IP (VoIP) has been regarded merely as an add-on to America's regular, analog-based copper and cellular voice networks -- networks that are currently maintained as a matter of legal requirement.

The FCC isn't necessarily such a stickler for tradition, however, as it is now encouraging phone networks to explore what would happen if VoIP replaced everything else.

In other words, how would the system cope if the only phone numbers were Internet Protocol addresses; if even emergency calls were transmitted over the web; and if remote rural communities became dependent on VoIP, with no other type of network as a backup?

Companies that want to participate in the experiment have until late February to submit their ideas, with approvals expected to be granted as early as March -- but don't fear, the tests will only be permitted in "discrete geographic areas or situations," which is the FCC's way of politely reminding telecom providers not to get ahead of themselves.

Sprint to Use Hydrogen Based Fuel Cells


Sprint announced plans to use fuel cells as the backup power source at some of its base station sites. Cell sites have diesel-based generators to provide electrical power in the event of an emergency. Sprint says that while it still uses diesel at most sites, the fuel cell program should help the company reduce its carbon footprint. 

Sprint is receiving some financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy for the project, and believes it can begin installing the hydrogen-based fuel cells by the end of the year.
