Quality Video: No Longer a Nice-to-Have

By    December 11, 2015

Remember in the early 2000s, when video-chatting with loved ones over long distances was a luxury? Streams would cut out all the time, and when they did work, they were often choppy. Even with today’s plethora of sleek videoconferencing options on desktops and mobile devices, a slow connection speed can still spoil the whole experience.

But for professionals that rely on video conferencing in mission-critical situations, smooth and high-quality video streaming cannot afford to be a “nice to have” – it’s an absolute necessity. Just ask medical experts who use videoconferencing to advise on surgeries being performed in other countries, or law enforcement who rely on real-time video surveillance in the midst of a hot pursuit. Just a moment’s lag or one timeout in the connection can have real consequences.

That’s why, for mission-critical enterprise video applications, we make sure our wireless point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) platforms don’t skimp on three key factors:

  • Stability. The service and connection need to be consistent, regardless of distance or location. In a matter of minutes, our LINKPlanner software can tell how well a link between two points will perform, using the exact coordinates of each module. The program then confirms exactly which equipment will be needed for installation and continuous, stable connectivity.
  • Symmetrical high speed. This is absolutely critical for large file transfer. With throughput up to 450 Mbps for uploads and downloads, our PTP links and modules allow for dependable conferencing and even the transfer of multi-terabyte multimedia files.
  • Low latency. We make this a priority to ensure voice and video applications are as clear as possible. Our ePMP™ platform, for instance, has a built-in spectrum analyzer that helps identify the right frequency for operation amid ambient RF noise, so customers can choose the best possible isolation.
