3G bonding alternative at Olympics
With hundreds of thousands of mobile phones expected to overload the 3G networks around the London Olympic Park, camera teams using 3G bonding links may not be able to get usable upload bandwidth for live streaming or ftp feeds, writes TVBEurope‘s David Fox. As an alternative, Boxx TV has set up an uncontended enterprise grade WiFi hotspot overlooking the main Olympic park, which will be dedicated to broadcasters using platforms such as LiveU, Quicklink, Livestream, Dejero, TVU or even Skype. It can also be used to send packages via FTP with upload speeds of around 4Mbps.
