Innovative Technology Reduces Peak Demand on 4G Mobile Networks
 
 
London 29 October 2012:  Motive Television PLC (AIM: MTV.LN), the London-based television software and services company, announces that it has developed a new solution that permits the managed distribution of video content to wireless devices in order to distribute the demand placed on 4G wireless networks more evenly over peak and off-peak periods.  Motive is an industry leader in providing managed content delivery based on the success of its Television Anytime Anywhere platform in datacasting video-on-demand (VoD) content over broadcast and satellite networks. The new technology is at a Proof of Concept (PoC) stage, however, it is expected to move to trial beginning 2013.

Motive’s new solution will permit 4G mobile users access to a vast library of VoD while at the same time allowing providers to reduce congestion and improving the overall user experience.  When mobile viewers request a download of content, Motive’s solution manages delivery by reserving a scheduled off-peak timeslot for delivery on the network which optimises network bandwidth for more efficient video delivery.

Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive Television, commented “Motive has developed industry-leading expertise in managing the delivery of on-demand content across all types of networks; digital terrestrial, satellite, cable, and IP.  Our new solution for 4G mobile networks is a good example of how Motive can apply its specialist knowhow to enable its clients to deliver content more efficiently within the constraints of existing capacity and networks.  It has the potential to provide very large savings to wireless network providers of video content and a better experience for consumers on a global basis.”
