5G-Xcast will devise, assess and demonstrate a conceptually novel and forward-looking 5G network architecture for large scale immersive media delivery.
The 5G-Xcast project will
Develop broadcast and multicast point to multipoint (PTM) capabilities for 5G considering media, entertainment, automotive, IoT and public warning system (PWS) use cases, and evaluate 5G spectrum allocation options for 5G Broadcast network deployments.
Design a dynamically adaptable 5G network architecture with layer independent network interfaces to dynamically and seamlessly switch between unicast, multicast and broadcast modes or use them in parallel and exploit built-in caching capabilities.
Experimentally demonstrate the 5G key innovations developed in the project for media & entertainment, and public warning system (PWS) verticals.
