5GMediaHUB Hackathon Update

5GMediaHUB Hackathon

We are delighted to extend an invitation for the ICT-41 5GMediaHUB Hackathon, taking place with the support of AppArt (www.app-art.gr). This Hackathon aims to bring together SMEs and academic participants, with a specific focus on those involved in 5G-PPP ICT-41 and SNS projects, who are keen on exploring and validating media-specific Network Applications. We invite you to explore our library of Network Applications and to potentially develop vertical application prototypes (PoCs) using our Northbound APIs, tailored for video streaming, UCG broadcasting, and VR.

Why select our Facility?

Developers in the media and entertainment sector need a playground through which they have the opportunity to test and validate their applications in an integrated, open and cost-efficient manner, so as to ensure that their product meets the highest standards before entering the market. An all-in-one comprehensive system is thus required. Development and experimentation are made fast and easy through the 5GMediaHUB Experimentation Facility, an all-in-one platform where users can develop, experiment, test and validate their media services and applications in a matter of a few minutes. Anyone wishing to check if their applications meet 5G requirements can view their results in a user-friendly way through the KPI visualisation system available in the platform. And the best part? 5G core network expertise is not needed! You do not have to be a tech savvy to use the Facility!
