Time synchronization services for media production over 5G networks


This is a report produced by the 5G-MAG Workgroup CP (Content Production - Standards and Architecture).

Current version of the report: v.1.0

Date of publication: 22nd December 2023


The 5G-MAG report "Towards a comprehensive 5G-based toolbox for live media production" identified a series of high-level scenarios where time synchronization is a required feature. Time synchronization is found key to align different media sources either within the same location, when carried over different network domains (fixed/wireless) or to support remote operations and control.

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.


5G-MAG welcomes feedback from the community to this document.
