Our architecture and use case team has just met in Pisa from 11 to 12 September 2017 to further progress on the definition of the 5G-MEDIA architecture and its use cases.
We thoroughly discussed the three 5G-MEDIA leading use cases on tele-immersive applications, smart and remote production and UHD content distribution over CDN. From end-user and media system requirements we identified key NFV functionalities, which can be realized integrating a number of available software assets from 5G PPP Phase 1 projects (e.g. SONATA, SELFNET, COGNET, etc.) and/or mainstream open source SDN/NFV projects (e.g. OSM, OPNFV, Open Baton, etc.). It’s necessary to progress with an assessment of these software products to eventually select the parts which better fit the 5G-MEDIA architecture we are designing.
