In the realm of mobile network video transmission, stadiums pose a unique set of challenges, particularly in the crowded areas. These challenges demand our attention as we strive to provide seamless and uninterrupted video streaming experiences to spectators.

One of the primary hurdles we encounter is the limitation imposed by the sheer size of the crowd. As thousands of fans gather in a confined space, the network infrastructure faces immense pressure to handle the surge in data traffic. This surge, coupled with the simultaneous demand for high-quality video streaming, can strain the network’s capacity and lead to buffering or even complete service disruption.

Moreover, the dynamic nature of stadiums, with fans constantly moving and changing their positions, adds complexity to the video transmission process. The network must adapt swiftly to these changes, ensuring that every spectator receives a consistent and uninterrupted video feed, regardless of their location within the stadium.

Our solution in the form of the LiveU Reliable Transport (LRT) protocol. This powerful technology lies at the core of all LiveU solutions, ensuring unwavering reliability over cellular and other IP networks. Specifically designed for bonded IP transmission, LRT™ guarantees exceptional reliability and consistent bandwidth even in the face of the most challenging cellular networks.

What sets LRT™ apart from other resilient streaming protocols is its utilization of multiple resiliency transmission techniques simultaneously.
