LTE technology held the major market share in the LTE and 5G broadcast market in 2020

LTE broadcast is transforming the types of services mobile customers receive, their quality, and the way they are delivered. It is equipped with eMBMS, a 3GPP standardized technology. The technology allows mobile operators to use a proportion of their network capacity for broadcasting popular content or data. LTE broadcast serves multiple customers within a single cell with the same video, TV, or other data services instead of unicasting delivery. LTE broadcast has significantly impacted the capacity needed to deliver popular content, and the technology is opening up new business opportunities for mobile operators. Users expect low latency in mobile devices while watching videos and TV content, leading to an increase in demand for LTE and 5G broadcast services.
