Feld Entertainment is the worldwide leader in producing and presenting live touring family entertainment experiences. Across 75 countries and six continents, Feld delivers live spectacles ranging from Monster Jam to Disney on Ice.
Feld Entertainment maximizes production value by relying on teams of experts creating video clips in real time. But creating them, communicating with other team members and other venues, and transmitting large files presents a massive networking challenge, both from a bandwidth, latency, and reliability perspective. The distances are huge, so a wired infrastructure is impractical, and they have tens of thousands of spectators consuming precious cellular bandwidth.

Slow and Intermittent Venue to Venue Communications
In addition to poor comms within a venue, some events involve multiple venues.
