On 15 November 2018, our colleague from BitTubes presented the 5G-MEDIA project in the context of the Berlin5GWeek. The workshop was called “How Dynamic 5G Networks Unfold the Media Industry”.
The focus of research into 5G networks to date has been largely on the required advances in network architectures, technologies and infrastructures. Less effort has been put on the applications and services that will make use of and exploit the flexibility of 5G networks built upon Software Defined Networks/Network Function Virtualization (SDN/NFV) concepts in the network core.
The lecture presented a novel Service Virtualization Platform (SVP), called 5G-MEDIA SVP, architecture based on NFV and SDN to facilitate the development, deployment and operation of media services on 5G networks. The proposed SVP is being validated against three media use cases: an immersive Virtual Reality 3D gaming application, the remote production of broadcast content incorporating user generated contents, and dynamically adaptive CDNs for the intelligent distribution of Ultra-High Definition (UHD) content.
