The Benefits of Bonded Connectivity
Bonded connectivity is a technology that combines multiple internet connections to create a single, more robust and reliable connection for live streaming. This process involves aggregating the bandwidth from different sources such as wired internet, WiFi, 4G, and satellite connectivity to ensure a stable and high-quality stream.
Bonded connectivity is important for live streaming for several reasons:
- Enhanced reliability: By using multiple internet connections, bonded connectivity reduces the risk of a single point of failure. If one connection drops or experiences issues, the other connections continue to provide support, ensuring a stable stream.
- Improved bandwidth: Bonding multiple connections increases the overall bandwidth available for streaming. This allows for higher quality video and audio streams, providing a better experience for viewers.
- Adaptive streaming: Bonded connectivity can adapt to changing network conditions in real-time, automatically adjusting the bitrate and resolution to provide the best possible quality based on the available bandwidth.
- Greater flexibility: Bonded connectivity enables live streaming from virtually any location, including remote or challenging environments where a single high-speed internet connection may not be available.
