In-vehicle video entertainment systems will soon be receiving fast connection speeds over LTE (4G) networks enabled by technology providers like Alcatel-Lucent and major carriers. In your car or RV, game players will be able to play video games digitally delivered in real-time (streamed). GameStreamer is working on this proof of concept with Alcatel-Lucent as part of the ng Connect program.
