Technical aspects

Setting the scene with high-level scenarios and architectures

We recommend having a look at the following report which presents three basic deployment scenarios together with a series of requirements and solutions in the space of the mobile technology ecosystem.

Towards a comprehensive 5G-based toolbox for live media production

5G-MAG Report - Latest version: v1.0 - 5th December 2022

With reference to three live production deployment scenarios of evolving complexity, it provides:

  • a brief description of the current state of the art for equipment and technologies;

  • an overview of the features that 5G would ideally support for each scenario;

  • and an initial inventory of potential solutions available in the 5G specifications currently under development.

Non-Public Networks? What are they?

We recommend having a look at the following explainers that bring insight into the different types of 5G networks for private use, both as a dedicated independent network (Standalone NPN - SNPN) or integrated within public networks (Public-Network-Integrated - PNI-NPN).

Non-Public 5G Networks for Content Production

5G-MAG Explainer

Non-Public Networks (NPNs) are a feature of 5G technology designed for localized non-public use. For media organizations, NPNs may offer the possibility of deploying fixed and nomadic networks, where fixed networks would cover small areas like studios or extend to the entire premises as a so-called campus network.

Deploying stand-alone Non-Public 5G Networks for media production

5G-MAG Explainer

A stand-alone Non-Public Network (SNPN) is an isolated network whose radio access network (RAN) and core network functions and services do not rely on a public mobile network. SNPNs may be deployed as fixed or nomadic networks, managed either by the entity making use of the NPN or a third party. They have full control and management capabilities for the network functions and services provided by the SNPN.

5G NPNs for media production in collaboration with third-party networks

5G-MAG Explainer

Different elements of the overall 5G system can be deployed in collaboration with third-party networks, including public networks. Two of the most relevant options are sharing network infrastructure and integrating an NPN within a public network, the latter defined in the 3GPP Release 16 specifications.

Simplifying device registration? Providing credentials remotely?

We recommend having a look at the following report which sets out opportunities for more efficient registration of multiple devices in networks or even the ability to provide credentials from a remote server. A series of tools to move away from the sometimes tedious process of acquiring your own SIM-cards, configure them, etc.

Guidelines on registration and onboarding for media production equipment over 5G NPNs

5G-MAG Report - Latest version: v1.0 - 7th September 2023

This report provides:

  • Information on the registration, authentication and onboarding procedures for devices in NPNs

  • guidelines for users and operators of 5G NPNs in relation to aspects such as network identifiers and storage and local and remote provisioning of credentials

Using the 5G network as a "clock server" or as a PTP transport networks?

We recommend having a look at the following report which describes architectures to enable device synchronization leveraging the internal 5G network clock or its use as a PTP transport network to propagate timing information.

Time synchronization services for media production over 5G networks

5G-MAG Report - Latest version: v1.0 - 22nd December 2023

This report provides:

  • information on the ability of 5G technologies to support time services in relevant deployment scenarios; and

  • guidelines in relation to time information distribution and exposure to applications.

Deployment and ecosystem aspects

I'd like to setup an NPN... how can I deploy? which bands? which spectrum?

We recommend having a look at the following report which describes different spectrum access models to deploy NPNs. Opportunities to harmonize spectrum access for multiple users according to actual needs and usage.

Spectrum access for live media production using Non-Public Networks (NPNs)

5G-MAG Report - Latest version: v1.0 - 7th September 2023

This report provides:

  • a description of spectrum access models in different frequency bands that would enable deploying NPNs. Examples of different approaches to spectrum access by administrations are also given;

  • information on the bands defined in the 5G standards where NPNs may potentially be deployed;

  • discussion on relevant spectrum access requirements for the deployment of NPNs for media production applications.
