To increase the cost savings and efficiency provided by multicasting, LTE network operators can add preloading. This tool delivers popular multimedia content during off-peak hours and stores it in mobile device memory for later use.
- eMBMS is far more scalable than unicast.
- It needs only a small fraction of the capacity required by unicast delivery.
- With preloading, eMBMS transmissions can be timed to use resources most efficiently.
