WORKGROUPS AND EXTERNAL GROUPS

The 5G-MAG Work Items are developed within the Workgroups. Additionally, 5G-MAG has established external groups to collaborate on relevant topics and/or with external organizations.

5G-MAG Workgroups (WGs)

  • WG UC: Use Cases, Requirements and Opportunities

  • WG CP: Content Production - Standards and Architectures

  • WG CD: Content Distribution - Standards and Architectures

  • WG DEV: Development and Implementation

  • WG EaR: Ecosystem and Regulation

  • WG PC: Promotion and Communication


External Groups

  • Joint DVB/5G-MAG Task Force (External Group governed by Liaison Agreement with DVB)

  • 5G-MAG Reference Tools Developers Group (External Group open to developer community)

WG (UC) USE CASES, REQUIREMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

The WG Use Cases, Requirements and Opportunities is responsible for enabling the incubation and on-boarding of new ideas on services and applications proposed by the members. It also handles the relevant tasks from the Work Items assigned to the workgroup. In particular, those including but not limited to:

  • Collection and analysis of use cases, i.e. the specific situation in which a service or application could potentially be used.

  • Definition of service and application requirements in relation to the identified use cases

  • Assessment of the market opportunities and analysis of the expected impact, advantages and challenges behind the proposed use cases

 

In conducting these tasks, the workgroup will be instrumental for:

  • Gathering information and data from reliable sources

  • Liaising with relevant stakeholders on the development of the proposed use cases

  • Facilitating exchange among the members and the industry

WG (CP) CONTENT PRODUCTION - STANDARDS AND ARCHITECTURES

The WG Content Production - Standards and Architectures is responsible for the technology and standards aspects relevant to media contribution (e.g. uplink streaming) and production (e.g. local area networks or non-public networks). In particular, it handles the tasks from the Work Items relevant to:

  • Definition, development and recommendation of system architecture and end-to-end solutions

  • Evaluation of technical requirements and KPIs

  • Examination of key emerging technologies from standard-development organizations and how they may support defined use cases

  • Identification of technical features in network equipment and user devices to enable defined use case.

  • Provision of technical feedback and contribution towards standard-development organizations.

  • Elaboration of technical guidelines, profiles and recommendations with a focus on technical implementation and deployments.

WG (DEV) DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION

The WG Development and Implementation is responsible for:

  • Driving the implementation of Reference Tools to validate and verify standards

  • Driving the implementation of Reference Tools to be used in demonstrations and production environments

  • Exchange and collaborate with reference software programs in other organizations (e.g. DASH-IF, DVB, CTA Wave, etc) to support end-to-end implementations

  • Monitor trials and interact with test-beds to collect data relevant for understanding technology features, performance and technology readiness

WG (EaR) ECOSYSTEM AND REGULATION

The WG Ecosystem and Regulation is responsible for handling the tasks in the Work Items relevant to:

  • Helping understanding regulatory frameworks and policies for the use of mobile technologies for media applications (e.g. spectrum access, network and device aspects,...).

  • Defining strategies towards technology deployment and feasible deployment scenarios

  • Identifying stakeholders within the ecosystem and their roles on the deployment and operation scenarios.
