Active Video Transport on Mesh Routers

Active Video Transport

 

AVT is an end-to-end video optimization scheme.

 

One end is the video traffic ingress point— the node through which video traffic enters the wireless mesh network. The ingress point is typically a leaf node in a wireless mesh network (Node-3).

 

The other end is the video traffic egress point—the node through which video traffic exits the wireless mesh network.

 

The egress point is typically a wired gateway in the mesh network (Node-1).

Configuring AVT Ingress:

 

The following summarizes the settings needed at the ingress point (Node 3):


• Mode/Status: AVT Ingress
• Buffer Time: 5 (the unit is in 100ms, so 5 is equipment to 500ms or 0.5s)
• Ingress Interface: Ethernet 0 (All compatible video streams received on the Ethernet 0 would be processed by AVT).

Using CLI to configure AVT:

 

1. Log into the CLI of Node 3 using any connection method. Go to “enable” mode.

 

2. Enter the following commands:

 

Configure terminal
Service avt
Mode ingress
Buffer time 5
Ingress-interface gigabit-ethernet 0
end
write memory

3. Use “show avt status” to check the AVT status. Verify that AVT is in ingress mode, the buffer
Time is 5 for 500ms, and ingress-interface is set to Ethernet 0

Configuring AVT Egress :

The following summarizes the settings needed at the egress point (Node 1):
• Mode/Status: AVT Egress
• The other settings do not take effect in egress mode.


Using CLI to configure AVT:

1. Log into the CLI of Node 1 using any connection method. Go to “enable” mode.

2. Enter the following commands

Configure terminal
Service avt
Mode egress
end
write memory

3. Use “show avt status” to check the AVT status. Verify that AVT is in egress mode
