Project to reduce energy use of 5G video streaming

A French project called NESTED project aims to cut the energy used for 5G video streaming with the latest VVC compression technology

www.eenewseurope.com, Nov. 23, 2021 – 

A consortium in France led by Ateme is working on ways to dramatically reduce the energy consumption for video over 5G wireless networks.

The NESTED (New vidEo STandards for Enhanced Delivery) consortium includes Orange, Viaccess-Orca, ENENSYS Technologies and IETR

The project will test the efficiency and sustainability of the NESTED streaming solution in real use cases over 5G using the VVC encoding algorithm. The project brings together leading French companies Viaccess-Orca, contributing its secure video player, QoE analytics enabler suite and targeted advertising solution, and Enensys Technologies with its MediaCast Mobile and its CubeAgent Mobile. IETR (Institut d'Electronique et des Technologies du numéRique), the research unit at French engineering school INSA Rennes, also participates by providing a VVC decoder.

The group is looking at how to use VVC (H.266, the successor to the current H.265 compression standard) to reduce the energy consumption of video over 5G. One way is to use the chunks of video (see the workflow above) to reduce the traffic burden on content delivery networks and to converge multicast and unicast streaming to reach large audiences.

This will enable multicast for 5G, allowing operators to take a greener approach to streaming and reduce the broadcasting infrastructure costs for service providers.
