Hans Agardh – Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
LTE Broadcast service has been launched commercially in Korea on a smartphone with a broadcast-enabled Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset. SFN technology is used to distribute broadcast streams into well-defined broadcast areas where all cells contributing to an SFN send the same data during exactly the same radio time-slots and appear as a single large cell.
