Ericsson's Wibergh talks about growing network traffic, how carriers might use LTE Broadcast
Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) used the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, last month to tout some of the company's bold predictions, including its forecast that 90 percent of network traffic eventually will be video.

Wibergh also touched on how carriers might use LTE Broadcast technology to deliver multiple video streams to phones at a sporting event or broadcast a single event to multiple users' devices.
