Private 5G networks disrupt traditional Wi-Fi and public 5G, particularly in video streaming and wireless connectivity. VidOvation has effectively integrated private 5G Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) wireless networking infrastructure with mobile bonded cellular video encoders. This ensures dependable video transport from the camera to the production facility. This solution suits At-home or REMI Remote Production workflows in areas congested with consumer traffic, where Wi-Fi and public 4G/5G struggle. The system allocates a dedicated CBRS bandwidth with a guaranteed SLA, providing reliability to production teams.
Major sports leagues, large venues, warehouses, airports, oil & gas refineries, petrochemical plants, and manufacturing facilities already adopt this technology. Its versatility and reliability make it an asset in various industries where uninterrupted connectivity and high-quality video streaming are paramount. With private 5G networks, these sectors can optimize operations, enhance safety measures, and streamline production workflows with confidence in their connectivity.

Private 5G networks are reshaping the connectivity landscape, challenging both traditional Wi-Fi and public 5G, especially in applications like video streaming and wireless connectivity. VidOvation has emerged as a leader in this space, seamlessly integrating private 5G Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) wireless networking infrastructure with mobile bonded cellular video encoders. This integration ensures the seamless and dependable transport of video data from the camera to the production facility, even in areas where Wi-Fi and public 4G/5G networks struggle due to congestion from consumer traffic.

Ideal for At-home or REMI Remote Production workflows, VidOvation’s solution provides production teams with a dedicated slice of CBRS bandwidth backed by a guaranteed Service Level Agreement (SLA). This reliability is crucial for maintaining seamless operations and high-quality video output in demanding production environments.

Already adopted by major sports leagues, large venues, warehouses, airports, oil & gas refineries, petrochemical plants, and manufacturing facilities, this technology offers versatility and reliability across diverse industries. By leveraging private 5G networks, these sectors can optimize their operations, enhance safety measures, and streamline production workflows with confidence in their connectivity infrastructure.

With private 5G networks becoming increasingly prevalent, industries can expect to see further innovations and advancements in wireless connectivity, unlocking new opportunities for efficiency and productivity across various applications.
The Private 5G and Mobile Encoder System successfully integrates Private 4G/5G/CBRS Access Points with a Controlling Edge Server. These Edge Servers then communicate with Cloud Orchestration software. The software centrally coordinates the deployment, management, and operation of the 5G wireless Local Area Network (LAN) solution. When using the CBRS spectrum, the Cloud Orchestration software integrates with the FCC Spectrum Access Service (SAS) to manage potential interference from neighboring radios. The FCC provisions and manages the slices of the CBRS spectrum to be used by each network provider. Private cellular networks also require enterprises to provision and manage SIM cards or eSIMs for each device to gain access to the Private 5G or CBRS network. The subscriber devices must support cellular band 48.  The SIMs are used in Mobile Video Encoders mounted on cameras or in backpacks carried by camera operators.

The system provides reliable wireless connectivity in large and crowded venues, making it perfect for video transport and streaming. For instance, in sports areas where 100,000 fans congest the public 4G/5G and WIFI infrastructure, a Private 5G CBRS wireless network can deliver a dedicated slice of the available CBRS spectrum. This ensures highly reliable wireless connectivity of more than 300 Mbps to mission-critical devices like live safety, point of sale, public address, communications, video transport, streaming, security cameras, robotics, and more.
