The last thing anybody needs from an IP Camera is poor quality, grainy or pixelated footage.
Celona MicroSlicing™ gives you the power to create custom applications and priority for all your private mobile network traffic. In this document we will show you how to configure MicroSlicing for IP Cameras sending data to a centrally located network video recorder, or video analysis ingest point.
The process for configuring MicroSlicing is the same:
Create your logical device group
Assign devices to the group
Create the custom application definition
Create the MicroSlicing policy.
Create Device Group & Assign Devices
Log in to Celona Orchestrator and select
Device Groups >
Create Device Group. Enter a name then select devices that apply and click
Update to save.
Create CCTV Application
Applications from the left hand menu and enter IP/port information.
Most IP Cameras in the market support the RTSP video protocol. RTSP uses
port 554 on the IP Camera which is why we have entered the port range under
Device Start / End Port.
If you are using a centralized NVR with a static IP address you would enter that in the
Remote Configuration section.
Add to save your application definition.
Creating the MicroSlicing policy
Select MicroSlicing from the left-hand menu and click
For Bitrate configuration you have two primary options,
Guaranteed Bit Rate (GBR) and
Non-GBR. If your cameras are configured to send video at a specific frame rate and bitrate, you can choose
However, most cameras are now configured for "Variable Bit Rate with a cap", as it provides the most efficient video encoding. This article provides a deeper dive on IP camera bitrates and best practice. For a Non-GBR configuration select
Streaming Video from the dropdown
QoS Priority list.
Our next step is to select the
Device Group and
Application that will be assigned to this MicroSlicing policy.
Save and your newly created policy will be active on your Celona private mobile network in minutes.
