New Webinar Series:
Automotive use of a Broadcast/Multicast
Wireless Network to enhance 4G and 5G
This webinar invites the automotive industry to take advantage of the next generation of IP based (Internet compatible) broadcast spectrum now being implemented at TV stations across the US and other countries (India, Brazil, Jamaica, and Korea).
This spectrum has a multicast (one to many) propagation pattern and is transmitted from tall towers, where each tower typically covers a 100-mile diameter region at a time. Because this spectrum is IP based it can be used as a supplement to enhance the efficiencies of 4 and 5G networks.
The goal of this three-part webinar series is to start an honest discussion about the benefits and real-world challenges of using ATSC 3.0 broadcast spectrum as a wireless data network to supplement 4 and 5G network data flow to Connected Vehicles.
We worked hard to balance our speakers between broadcast and automotive experts so both perspectives will be well represented. Webinar #1 has been completed and can be viewed on demand.
Webinar #3: Coming up Dec. 1st at 12:00 PM ET
As automotive connectivity extends to other vehicles, local driving conditions, and even smart city data, what value can a supplemental multicast ATSC 3.0 network add to 4 and 5G? A high level panel of automotive and transportation specialists evaluate automotive connectivity today and into the future.
Webinar #1: Watch on Demand
This webinar introduces how Connected Vehicles could use broadcast spectrum for wireless multicast (one to many) data transport with existing 4 and 5G networks. Reports on 5G/ATSC 3.0 integration and plans underway to build a national network of broadcast spectrum will be presented.
Webinar #2: Watch on Demand
Top 3 Connected Vehicle Applications a Multicast Wireless (ATSC 3.0) Network can make More Efficient
1) Constant RTK geolocation
Satellite delivery of centimeter (cm) accurate geolocation to Connected Vehicles requires error correction, often delivered through a LTE or 5G network which can get costly. The blanket coverage of a Broadcast/Multicast network could be much more efficient but what are the practicalities?
2) OTA software updates
Broadcast/Multicast could logically be a more cost-effective way to wirelessly deliver OTA firmware and software updates to CVs. What are the challenges of getting hardware needed to make this work? What are the software challenges after that?
A Broadcast/Multicast data network has the same propagation characteristics as traditional broadcast TV. A single broadcast tower can have a coverage diameter of 100 miles. How can this help in-car entertainment?
