SMART CITY CAMERA CONNECTIVITY OVER CELLULAR NETWORKS.
Telicomm Breaks through Traditional, Limited Cellular Bandwidth Boundaries by Enabling Camera Connectivity via Cellular Networks
To truly enter the digital age and become smart cities, municipalities need thousands of cameras – and they need them right away.
In 2017, 10 million cameras were installed worldwide in order to enable safe and smart city applications.
Most of these projects involved cumbersome cable installations.
However, in the spirit of optimization and efficiency, it is in these cities’ best interests to adopt immediate and flexible solutions that best suit today’s rapidly changing (urban infrastructure) environment.
This can only be done using the existing cellular network. Yet, due to challenges linked to limited bandwidth, today’s cellular network infrastructure simply cannot support the camera connectivity needs of tomorrow smart cities seek.
Telicomm invented - P-VAN™ (Predictive Video Aware Network) technology – a one-of-its-kind solution. The basic idea behind the technology is as follows: The camera output bitrate depends on the dynamic of the shooting object. Static object results low output bit rate and vice versa. The cellular channels capacity depends on the physics of the electro-magnetic wave propagation and the cell loading by different users. The magic happens when the system fits the statistical behavior of the shooting object to the different statistical behavior of the cellular channel capacity.
Telicomm’s technology runs two orthogonal algorithm engines: one predicts the video bitrate peaks; the other estimates the cellular network channel’s capacity ahead of time, using a machine learning algorithm. Our SW manager optimizes video traffic in the air according to the results of real-time analysis performed by two algorithm engines
