FLAME outlines the main platform benefits as part of the initial work needed to develop and
deploy a Future Media Internet delivery platform starting in 2018. The main target is to provide a significant leap forward for media delivery supporting personalized, interactive, mobile and localized (PIML) workflows.
The FLAME platform provides this leap through capabilities for low latency distributed computing as well as content over a 5G-enabled programmable infrastructure, providing the user with faster access to media and services, lower latency and higher personalization of the experience through closer media processing. Through the platform’s fast and dynamic service request routing capability, media service providers will have fine-grained control over load and therefore costs across the network. This offers the potential to significantly reduce the overall costs while ensuring fast availability of services towards end users.
Furthermore, the FLAME platform will provide the capability to cheaply broadcast content to multiple users without any need for adopting clients and services to specific multicast protocols, significantly reducing the predicted cost increase for video delivery.
