Introduction
3GPP cameras meet the requirement of surveillance anywhere and anytime. However, it
usually gives users a hard time to configure and make it work. Working 3GPP camera
surveillance needs three parts:
(1) A correct setting for 3GPP camera.
(2) An operator supporting streaming service via 3G handset
(3) A correct setting of 3G handset with RTSP complaint application on it.
For item 2 and 3, they are co-related. Different operator will need different setting of the
3G handset to enable streaming setting. Usually you can call your service provider to send
you the streaming setting via SMS. Anyway, customer service of your cell phone operator will
solve this problem for you. This document will focus on the camera setting part to guide user
to install a 3GPP camera with correct media and network setting. In addition to that, a FAQ
will also be available for trouble shooting.

Network setting for 3GPP camera
We divided network environment into 2 categories to guide user to install 3GPP camera
correctly for mobile viewing.
(1) With IP router
If your 3GPP camera will be installed behind IP router, port forwarding is
necessary for your IP router. You can just check the check box of “Enable UPnP port
forwarding” (see figure 1) and network camera will automatically try to open all the
necessary port for you.
If your IP router does not support UPnP, the error message of UPnP port
forwarding will be shown in network page (See Figure 2). You will need to open the
port forwarding manually. There are 6 ports totally needed to be opened in the IP
router. They are HTTP port for TCP (1), RTSP port for TCP (2), RTP video port (3),
RTCP video port (4), RTP audio port (5) and RTCP audio port (6). Just open these
6 ports in your router mapping to the IP address of your network camera. For
example:
(1) Open the port of HTTP (80) with TCP protocol in the router mapping to the
IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with HTTP port (80)
(2) Open the port of RTSP (554) with TCP protocol in the router mapping to the
IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with RTSP port (554)
(3) Open the port of RTP/video (5558) with UDP protocol in the router mapping
to the IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with RTP/video port (5558)
(4) Open the port of RTCP/video (5559) with UDP protocol in the router
mapping to the IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with RTCP/video port
(5559)
(5) Open the port of RTP/audio (5556) with UDP protocol in the router mapping
to the IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with RTP/audio port (5556)
(6) Open the port of RTCP (5557) with UDP protocol in the router mapping to
the IP address 192.168.1.100 of camera with RTCP/audio port (5557)
Make sure port mapping will be the same both in the router and camera.

It is also feasible to install multiple 3GPP network cameras behind one IP router.
Each camera should use a different set of ports. For example:
Camera 1: HTTP port (8080), RTSP port (1554), RTP/RTCP video port
(8000/8001), RTP/RTCP audio port (8002/8003)
Camera 2: HTTP port (8081), RTSP port (1555), RTP/RTCP video port
(8004/8005), RTP/RTCP audio port (8006/8007)
Camera 3: HTTP port (8082), RTSP port (1556), RTP/RTCP video port
(8008/8009), RTP/RTCP audio port (8010/8011)
Note that each camera has different ports from each other. This is because all
these ports need to be open in the router.
This way, each camera will share the same public IP and you can access each
one by different port number. For example: if the domain name of the IP router is
livecam.VIVOTEK.com, the URL of each camera for handset to input would be
Camera 1: rtsp://livecam.VIVOTEK.com:1554/live.sdp
Camera 2: rtsp://livecam.VIVOTEK.com:1556/live.sdp
Camera 3: rtsp://livecam.VIVOTEK.com:1556/live.sdp
From above, all we want to know is RTSP port to obtain a valid URL to access each
camera
When “Enable UPnP port forwarding” is checked, camera will automatically
communicate with router and assign necessary ports by itself except HTTP port.
HTTP port need to assign by user otherwise camera can not be accessed once
HTTP port is random assigned. All that user need to do is assign HTTP port for each
camera and check “Enable UPnP port forwarding”. Again, you have to choose
different HTTP port for each of your camera if you are installing multiple ones and
camera will take care of rest of the ports for you. After all the cameras are installed,
user can then obtain the assigned RTSP port.

(2) Without IP router
The network setting becomes more straightforward in this scenario. Either fixed IP
or PPPoE can be set in network camera. It depends on which kind of internet service
user are subscribing. If PPPoE is applied, DDNS is strongly recommended since IP is
floating. There are several DDNS services supported in VIVOTEK network camera. Pick
up anyone you prefer! Without IP router, port forwarding is no more an issue and you
don’t have to set each camera with different streaming port. You can just leave all of
them default value. In fact, leaving rtsp port as default one will get the most compatibility
for handsets.

Mobile viewing setting of Camera
Figure 3
From the page of video and audio setting (For IP7135/7), there is a radial check of
“configuration for mobile viewing”. Checking this will automatically set all the media setting to
fit 3GPP standard for both video and audio. This is the minimum requirement of 3GPP. If your
operator provides higher bandwidth of 3G network, you can change “Constant bit rate” to
better one as well as “Max frame rate”. Just tune these 2 parameters to optimize your 3GPP

setting. The higher frame rate will lead to worse video quality. If you saw broken video on your
handset, you might overdo the bandwidth adjusting
As regarding to network camera of dual stream (IP7138/9), there is no mobile viewing
option. Please make sure that video setting is correct in either stream 1 or stream 2.

Supporting handsets list
Table below is the tested handsets that support VIVOTEK 3GPP camera. Basically,
Nokia, Motorola and Sony-Ericsson use the same streaming player for most of their models.
So the compatible handsets should be much more than the listed ones below.
If you only want to install one camera behind IP router for mobile viewing, please choose
RTSP default port 554. This will make the most compatibility of streaming to handsets.
If several 3GPP cameras are installed behind IP router, user need to access different
camera via different RTSP port. However, not all of the handsets support streaming with other
port instead of default one. That is because some players in the handset do not support port
probing and rely on the RTSP proxy installed in operator side. This leads to only default RTSP
port (554) will work for streaming. Anyway, below is the table listing the streaming capability of
handsets.
Basically, S60 platform of Nokia uses real player which supports port probing. In other
words, if your handset has real player on it, then you can use different port to distinguish
different cameras which enable you to install multiple cameras behind IP router accessible to
your handset. If you do not have real player for your handset, please install your cameras in
fixed IP or PPPoE network environment. This way you can install each camera with default
RTSP port 554 and most of the handsets can streaming without problem.

FAQ
1. How to configure my handset to support live streaming
Ans. Call your phone company. Usually they will send you the configuration to your
handset or show you where to download the configuration document. Please make
sure your handset support streaming before install 3GPP camera. Test with some
streaming provided by your phone company to make sure the handset is ready for
streaming
2. How to know that my handset support VIVOTEK’s 3GPP network camera?
Ans.
(1) Make sure your handset is configured correctly for 3GPP streaming (see FAQ1)
(2) Use IE browser to connect to http://60.248.39.152 to make sure VIVOTEK’s 3GPP
demo site is available
(3) Input rtsp://60.248.39.152/live.sdp to your player of your handset. If it is working, your
handset is compatible to VIVOTEK’s 3GPP network camera
3. How do I know that I installed my 3GPP camera correctly for handset streaming?
(1) Use IE browser to check if you can access your 3GPP camera from a different network
domain. For example: if camera is installed in your home, connect it from your office or
call your friend to try.
(2) If it is not working, check below
(a) Make sure IP address or domain name is correct in your url
(b) Make sure you input the correct http port in your url
(c) If you got a IP router, make sure you open port forwarding correctly in your IP router
or there is no error message in your network page (See Figure 2)
(d) If you do not have an IP router, make sure network configuration is correct when
fixed IP is used. When PPPoE is used, make sure you input the correct username
and password. Also, ping the domain name of your 3GPP camera to check if DDNS
is working.
(3) If your 3GPP network camera is available from internet, make sure “configure for
mobile viewing” is checked in the video and audio page or video setting is correct for
mobile viewing
4. I have installed camera and still can’t see anything on my handset.
Ans. please follow the procedures step by step to test:
13
Confidential
Project code management 2006
(1) Make sure your handset can view some streaming provided by your phone company.
If it does not, (see FAQ1)
(2) Use IE browser to http://60.248.39.152 to check VIVOTEK’s 3GPP camera demo site
is working and make sure your PC is connecting to internet.
(3) If your handset can see streaming, try to input “rtsp://60.248.39.152/live.sdp” to your
player. If you can see the video, this means your handset is ready. Let’s check the
camera
(4) Use IE browser to connect to your 3GPP camera, check if your camera is working
well via IE browser. Make sure you are NOT using a PC in the same LAN with your
3GPP camera. If it is not working, check if your UPnP port forwarding is OK or port
mapping is the same with your 3GPP camera.
(5) If it is working fine via IE browser, make sure “configure for mobile viewing” is
checked in the video and audio page or video setting is correct for mobile viewing.
5. I don’t know how to open port in the router
Ans. you can open ports in the router for your camera in 2 ways
(1) Let camera do it automatically as long as your router support UPnP. For detail, see
network camera setting
(2) Do it manually. Please see the user’s manual of your SOHO router.
6. How can I use domain name to access camera instead of IP address?
Ans. Activate the DDNS in the DDNS page of the camera. If you are using a IP router and
it has DDNS function, you can let router do the DDNS update for all of your cameras.
