Satellite-enhanced edge delivery

The 5G-EMERGE project aims to develop an integrated satellite and terrestrial system based on open standards, to enable high-quality content distribution services.


Telecommunications satellites will be used to efficiently deliver high-demand content, including streaming of live events, as close as possible to the end user – to the ‘edge’. This could be in neighbourhood base stations or even in the users' homes or vehicles. At these network edges, a smart satellite gateway will be able to connect to a regular smartphone, a tablet or a TV set.

The project consortium is led by the EBU (European Broadcasting Union)  with the majority of funding coming from ESA, the European Space Agency, under its ARTES programme. (ESA provides information on the project here.)

By leveraging 5G systems and so-called ‘edgecasting’, 5G-EMERGE will put Europe at the vanguard of media delivery technology.

European citizens and industry alike will benefit from smarter and more efficient media delivery through the link-up of satellite communication systems with land-based 5G connectivity.

MEET US @ NAB 2024
