Video Streaming Over Cellular Hotspots


Hi I’m Jamie’s water with Momentum
Church in the Navarre campus here in Florida. We are a mobile campus. We set up
the campuses each weekend. We set them up, we hold service, and then we tear down, so
we do not have the infrastructure at either location, so we have to rely on
cell phone wireless hotspots in order to get our message from the broadcast
campus over here to the remote campus in Navarre. Living As One was the only
company that was confident that we could get the service to work over wireless
hotspots, so we have two separate networks, and creating a dual LAN
scenario so we have redundancy. Right here is the best one the Verizon one in
this area it’s a typically over 20 megabits a second download speed, so it’s
older model but the key thing is that you need to have a cat5/cat6 connection
in here because most of the market is going to MiFi by where it’s all wireless
and that setup will not work. What you need is one that would enable you to cut
in, connect in a LAN port and I just added this antenna from an old wireless
mic from my house. Outside you have two wireless cell phone hotspots – one with
Verizon, one with AT&T. What they do is they come in to a Peplink
dual WAN router. I have Verizon in WAN 1 in AT&T in WAN 2. I have my Living As One second-generation decoder. It’s connected into the second WAN port here.
The Peplink router is configured to use whichever one has the best signal and it
will flip between the two as it needs to get the signal through. With the second
generation decoder, using the a HEVC compression scheme or the h.265, it has
cut our bandwidth requirements in half. I can easily run my gathering on less
than 5 megabits per second. Last week we did a five-minute buffer and a
three-minute buffer for the second gathering without any problems
whatsoever.
