5G Broadcast meets Broadband
Nakolos develops products and solutions for content providers and broadcast network operators to utilize the combination of 5G Broadcast and Broadband on Android mobile devices.
The core technology consists of a lightweight middleware which enables Android apps to benefit from the advantages from 5G Broadcast which is seamlessly integrated with the existing broadband connection, e.g. Wifi or 5G.
A cloud-based control system monitors the current load of content in specific areas and based on the previously set thresholds automatically provisons the 5G Broadcast reception.
