What is Cellular Bonding?
Cellular bonding is when you combine the bandwidth of two or more cellular modems. A cellular modem allows computers and laptops to access wireless internet. Cell bonding combines cellular data from any available data providers such as Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T. The process combines the bandwidth of that data with any available ethernet or Wi-Fi sources into one seamless internet connection.
Combining these multiple forms of internet and data provides you with a stronger and more reliable bandwidth. The reliability is greater than any of the single connections alone. Therefore, you can send and receive live streams as well as browse the web in remote locations, even if you don’t have a strong internet connection. At Varvid, we know that not every live streaming venue will provide you with the connection your event needs, so cellular bonding options are available to make sure your stream goes ahead as planned.
If one carrier’s signal goes down, the bonding can shift the demand to the stronger signals. Cellular bonding uses real-time monitoring to always use the strongest signal path, and so works as a great back-up.
Streaming with Cellular Bonding vs. a Smartphone
Location, network use, and network health will all affect the quality and capabilities of your live stream. Cellphones rely on one cellular modem from your service provider, so live streams from a cell phone typically have:
- Poor quality and low bandwidth
- A fluctuation or dropping signal
- Inherent limitations to producing quality videos
When you use internet bonding, you don’t have to worry about whether or not your internet connection will ruin the attendees’ experiences. When you are streaming an event such as a sporting event, panel discussion, or presentation, a weak or dropped connection can seriously impact engagement. Avoid that risk when you stream cellular.
Benefits of Cell Bonding
There are several benefits to Varvid’s cell bonding solutions for your event. These advantages include:
- Reduced setup times. Instead of using a large and bulky internet setup, cell bonding is an easy-to-use solution for flexibility and speed.
- Dependability. Bonding creates a strong pipeline for delivering your video from point A to point B. In the case of an internet drop, your event can fall back on many other connections without interrupting the stream.
- Video quality. Bonding improves data consumption efficiency and allows for a much clearer video at less expense. Your viewers deserve quality even if they cannot make it in person.
