3G/4G: with the improving technology associated with smart phones and portable 3G/4G modems, this technology is becoming increasingly reliable and available.
Telephone: where available, this path offers reliability and reasonable audio quality. Consider running a cable to a nearby residential property or local business (with their permission). At the studio end, a telephone hybrid with VQR will receive the call.
ISDN: For a regularly occuring OB, an ISDN line will provide maximal quality and reliability for your audio return. Unfortunately, this option is becoming decreasingly common due to cost and availability.
ADSL: Where available, ADSL offers improved audio quality and relaibility when compared with a standard telephone call or 3G/4G, however it will require integration with local infrastructure. Using any IP codec in combination with a NanoBridge open band digital link it is possible to establish high quality stereo or mono communication.The Phoenix Mercury or Alio codec could be deployed at the OB site and the Phoenix Venus rack mounted at the studio. Alternatively, this same design could be used to send your studio signal to the transmitter site with ease.
With the equipment configured, connect the audio cables and align the antennas to create an unlicensed, bi-directional link which can be monitored for data and audio quality.
Alternatively, using a 3G/4G solution, you can transport your encoded audio signal using OPUS a very low latency low bandwidth codec. Phoenix codecs are equipped with SmartRTP to allow easy connection between devices, and are used in global events from the Olympic Games to IAAF. High quality cost effective audio distribution for Outside Broadcast or RF Rebroadcast.
