3GPP STANDARDISATION

3GPP technologies are being shaped to accommodate features and functionalities demanded by the industry. Originally driven by the needs of mobile networks to accomodate the increasing consumption of data, the scope has broadened to offer solutions to different stakeholders, including those in the media industry.

Enhancements to 5G include features to improve its ability to distribute media content and services, with unicast as the main solution but also relying on broadcast, edge caching, virtualized media functions, network slicing or even the potential of using terrestrial and satellite networks. A wide set of options that, combined with cloud-based flexible architectures, may create the framework for enhancing the way IP-based distribution of media content is delivered to users.

Professional content production and contribution presents requirements such as high throughput, low latency, synchronicity or high reliatiliby for the capture and transport of content. Most of the requirements apply to the uplink and, in many cases, may need to coexist with user-generated traffic and require a high degree of protention and security. A set of professional content production use cases has been defined within 3GPP, which may pave the way towards their implementation using 5G technology and networks.
