LiveU LRT Cloud Bonding Annual Service (Download)
Take your Solo live streams to the next level with the LRT Cloud Bonding Annual Service from LiveU. The one-year bonding plan combines up to four signals (two cellular connections, one Wi-Fi signal, and one Ethernet signal), allowing bandwidth consistency even when one source becomes unstable. With such assurance, you can more confidently generate a high-quality live stream from just about anywhere. LiveU Reliable Transport (LRT) integrates select video delivery techniques into one protocol to offer reliable streaming with the Solo encoder. Key features of the service include packet ordering, dynamic Forward Error Correction (FEC), and adaptive bit rate encoding.
LRT uses numbered packets so that the packets can be reordered when they arrive out of order. Packet Ordering is an absolute requirement with connection bonding, where data usually arrives in a different order than intended.
Dynamic Forward Error Correction
Forward Error Correction (FEC) adds some overhead to the stream to recover lost data faster. LRT automatically varies the FEC parameters based on monitored network conditions.
Acknowledge and Resend
LRT can acknowledge large groups of packets if they all arrived. If some did not arrive, it can inform the streaming engine to resend needed data. By acknowledging large groups of packets at a time, LRT uses less overhead and latency. Unlike UDP, LRT gives complete feedback loop so the user knows that the data is arriving correctly.
Adaptive Bit Rate Encoding
As the bandwidth condition changes, LRT automatically recognizes this and informs the video encoder to allow it to adapt the bit rate of video it is delivering and keep the best possible stream within the available bandwidth at any given moment.
