CONTENT DISTRIBUTION - COMMERCIAL (CD-C)

Workgroup CD-C is responsible for:

  • Analysing commercial and market-related aspects on the deployment and implementation of 5G technologies for media distribution

  • Developing use-cases and user service propositions for the technologies within the scope

  • Developing commercial requirements for input into standards or related activities in other 5G-MAG groups

  • Analysing the device ecosystem and deriving steps towards implementation and commercial deployment

This workgroup allocates activities within its scope related to 5G-MAG Work Items. Topics may include (non-exclusive):

  • Services: Distribution of TELEVISION, RADIO, IMMERSIVE MEDIA, ON-DEMAND and PERSONALIZED services leveraging 5G technologies

  • Networks: Role and deployment models for 5G mobile networks, terrestrial broadcast, satellite, content delivery networks, etc.

  • Device: Smartphones, Smart TVs, Connected Cars, Home Gateways, Wearables, etc.

TASK FORCE 5G-MAG REFERENCE TOOLS (TF-RT)

5G-MAG has agreed to support the promotion and fostering of 5G Media technologies by launching a programme to develop 5G Media Reference Tools. Sponsored by 5G-MAG, this activity aims at establishing a developer community and at creating common open-source reference tools to support the implementation and interoperability of 5G Media technologies.

The activity and the implementation is defined and coordinated by 5G-MAG members. Learn more about the scope of the activity and the team of external developers here.

 

The Task Force 5G-MAG Reference Tools reports to CD-T.
