5G-MAG Workgroups (WGs)

  • UC: Use Cases, Requirements and Opportunities

  • CPT: Content Production - Standards and Architectures

  • CDT: Content Distribution - Standards and Architectures

  • DEV: Development and Implementation

  • ECO: Ecosystem and Regulation

  • PC: Promotion and Communication


External Groups

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

WG USE CASES, REQUIREMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

This WG is meant to handle 5G-MAG Work Items relevant to:

  • Collect and analyse 5G media use cases and scenarios

  • Define end-to-end view on use cases and derive commercial and technical requirements

  • Elaborate on deployment and collaboration models together with the expected impact, benefits and challenges across the value chain

  • Assess market opportunities by means of surveys and data analysis

  • Liaise with relevant stakeholders on development of media-centric use cases

CONTENT PRODUCTION - STANDARDS AND ARCHITECTURES

This WG is meant to handle 5G-MAG Work Items relevant to:

  • Define, develop and recommend system architectures and interoperable end-to-end solutions to address use cases and services related to content creation and production 

  • Derive and evaluate technical requirements and KPIs

  • Examine key emerging technologies from standardization bodies and determine whether and how they may support the defined use cases, including the detection of any deficiencies/gaps.

  • Identify technical features of any required equipment to enable the use cases, including network equipment and user devices.

  • Provide technical feedback and contributions towards ETSI, 3GPP and other relevant standards development organisations.

  • Elaborate technical guidelines, profiles and recommendations with a focus on technical implementation and deployment.

WG DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION

This WG is meant to handle 5G-MAG Work Items relevant to:

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

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

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

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.

WG ECOSYSTEM AND REGULATION

This WG is meant to handle 5G-MAG Work Items relevant to:

  • Help members understanding the regulatory framework for 5G media distribution and media production applications.

  • To engage with relevant bodies to both inform stakeholders about industry requirements and educate members on relevant discussions

  • Investigate suitable market and regulatory frameworks to foster technology adoption and commercial deployments
