Expway eBox

eMBMS Device Acceptance and Certification Tool

Expway eBox is a compact and portable, full LTE Broadcast network, designed and packaged to run preliminary LTE Broadcast lab evaluations, and pre-carrier-validation tests.

Applications

  • Device certification
  • Device validation
  • Public Service scenario validation
  • Demonstration

Highlights

How it Works

Rolling out commercial LTE Broadcast devices, applications and services is a complex, multi-step process requiring progressive network-to-device alignments with multiple debugging and verifications phases. It can also include passing stringent, costly and time-consuming carrier validation tests. Expway eBox for LTE Broadcast improves carrier testing sucess rates - cost effectively. It allows you to simulate carrier-testing conditions and comply with carrier validation workflow, process and test plans, so you can pass your next carrier test with flying colors!

For Mobile Carriers, Device Makers and Application Developers

Mobile carriers, device makers and application developers worldwide use eBox to verify their LTE Broadcast devices’ end-to-end connectivity and premium content delivery, and validate user experience quality, quickly and cost effectively.

Included In Expway eBox For LTE Broadcast

Expway eBox for LTE Broadcast is a real LTE Broadcast network - EPC and RAN, fully virtualized. It comes with the Expway BMSC - Expway’s LTE Broadcast server software - pre-installed on a small portable hardware box and a multiband radio transceiver. Also included, is the Expway Middleware to enable mission critical mobile devices for LTE Broadcast.
