Brainstorm participates in 5GMediaHUB focusing on broadcast projects
Brainstorm announced its participation in the 5GMediaHUB project, coordinated by the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) from Barcelona, Spain. The project provides an opportunity for different companies to experiment 5G media applications, and Brainstorm will focus its efforts on broadcasting panoramic virtual content optimally to multiple users.
The company is working in the definition of the different cases of use of the project, its technical requirements, KPIs, and will also establish the basis on which the validation plan will be designed. January 2021 marked the start of the H2020 5G-PPP Phase 3 project 5GMediaHUB “5G experimentation environment for 3rd party media services” with an online kick-off meeting between the 17 consortium partners from 11 European countries, comprising of large companies, SMEs, Universities and Research Centers.
The aim of the 5GMediaHUB project is the development of a testing and validation environment in order to create the 5GMediaHUB Experimentation Facility, which will constitute an elastic, secure, trusted, all-in-one and multitenant service execution and Network Applications (NetApps) development environment. This facility will provide an space for enterprises to reduce the time needed to make its services available to end-users.
“In 5GMediaHUB we capitalize on the experience from previous 5G projects in network slicing and orchestration. Existing well-established 5G platforms will be extended during the project in order to test 3rd party media services to enable the EU to achieve its goal of becoming a world leader in 5G”, stated 5GMediaHub Project Coordinator Christos Verikoukis, Research Director at CTTC.
