"Setting up the Kieler Woche's broadband communications network was the first application of eLTE in
Founded in 1882, Kieler Woche is one of the world's largest sailing events and brings together the champions of the Sailing World Cup and Olympic Games. Each year more than 5,000 sailors and 3,000 sailing boats gather to compete in more than forty races. Sixteen of the races are from national and international sailing events, while ten races are from the Olympic Games.
During the event, it was crucial to establish stable transmissions from the competing boats to provide live footage of the races. Traditional Wi-Fi networks are unstable at sea and it was difficult for the filming crew to capture footage near the competing boats. However, based on LTE technology, Huawei's eLTE solution enabled the organizers to set up two DBS3900 distributed base stations across the race course where footage of the race was captured using smart phones and transmitted to the event organizer via the eLTE network. The footage was then transmitted to mobile phones and tablets in the audience stand via an enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) that was supported by Vodafone Germany's LTE carrier network.
As of the second quarter of 2014, Huawei has signed more than 61 eLTE network contracts and launched 19 commercial eLTE networks. Of the eLTE contracts, 31 were signed with governments, 10 with the transportation industry, 6 with the electricity and power industry, 5 with the energy industry, and 9 with the Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) industries.
