Revolutionizing Video Delivery: 5G-EMERGE Reveals Hybrid Architecture at Mobile World Congress

Latest White Paper on Satellite-Enhanced Edge Delivery

A white paper by the 5G-EMERGE project has been released, introducing a hybrid delivery ecosystem that can efficiently supply distributed ‘edge caches’ on 5G and other terrestrial networks via satellites. This cutting-edge architecture was presented at the Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona and enables service providers to deliver video streaming services on land, sea, and in the air in a cost-effective and scalable manner.

This innovative approach allows users to access content seamlessly through regular 5G or broadband networks, with the content being served transparently from an edge cache on the network. The architecture is particularly suitable for live signals like sports or news, as well as on-demand video content delivery use-cases. This technology helps alleviate bottlenecks, improve robustness, and enhance user experience without requiring specialized capabilities from consumer hardware.

Led by the EBU and co-funded by ESA ARTES, the 5G-EMERGE consortium includes organizations like HPE, SES, and TNO, among others. This collaborative effort offers unprecedented access and flexibility while supporting a variety of business models.
