USE CASE 4

Follow-ME Infotainment

The “Follow-Me Infotainment” solution will be developed and validated.

Objective

Demonstrate how, by means of the technology resources developed in the 5GMED project, it will be possible for general users travelling at high speed by train or car to access high-quality media content while keeping high QoE/QoS levels.

The target is to optimise the media content distribution, resulting in a high-quality reception and avoiding service disruptions, even in the cross-border.

How?

By integrating innovative streaming, and interactive technologies on top of a 5G orchestrated infrastructure.

To create new and enhanced end-user experiences to be consumed while travelling in a car or a train through the 5GMED corridor, being reactive to user requirements as well as environmental and platform-specific aspects.

Focus

The demonstration of the so-called “Folow-Me” concept:  moving the virtual functions of the media service that end-users are accessing (or part of them) along with different Edge nodes as the user moves along the corridor, so that these virtual functions are located in data centres which are placed close to the user’s position at all times

The Media Infotainment Application: set of advanced media services that will be used to showcase the previous “Follow-Me” concept.

This media application will consist of a set of 3 media services:

  • Watch movies/shows together service
  • Tour Planning Media Service
  • VR 360 that will be introduced in the following sections.
