With the introduction of the 5G System, the network core architecture underwent a complete overhaul. The 5G Core has been designed following a Function-based approach with separation of control and user plane. Concepts like network slicing, edge computing, dynamic QoS, northbound APIs, and traffic influencing are a core part of the 5G System.
This Technical Report documents the integration of media distribution services in the 5G System. It is organized in two parts: network aspects and UE API aspects. The network aspects cover the migration of existing media distribution services from LTE to 5G. It also discusses emerging media services and use cases and how they can be realized in 5G. The API section investigates requirements of existing and immersive media services and the related requirements and API needs.
The present document studies the evolution of media distribution with the development of 5G. It addresses the networking and the API aspects that effect the integration in the 5G System.
