InterDigital to Showcase Innovative Next Gen Networks Architecture Yielding Exponential Video Streaming Gains

BARCELONA, Spain and WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, will be featuring a unique and innovative Next Generation Networks (NGN) architecture with a flexible routing solution that yields exponential video streaming gains at Mobile World Congress, the industry's premier conference, from February 22-25, 2016 in Barcelona.

The flexible routing solution utilizes an innovative Information Centric Networking (ICN) approach that re-introduces multicast into a world of predominantly personalized web experiences and provides flexible routing at runtime through Software Defined Networking (SDN)/Network Function Virtualization (NFV) software elements. The technology has been developed in collaboration with four other collaborators from the EC-funded collaborative research and development projects, POINT (“iP Over IcN – the betTer IP”) and RIFE (aRchitecture for an Internet For Everybody). In addition, the flexible routing solution recently became ETSI’s MEC Industry Specification Group’s fourth proof-of-concept.

“Current approaches to content delivery will be unsustainable within 5G, and this solution points the way to a new innovative structure that can meet and exceed 5G requirements,” said Dirk Trossen, Principal Scientist, InterDigital Europe, and leader of EC-funded efforts in this space. “In just over a year’s time, we’ve developed a truly unique solution that meets challenging 5G requirements, more than five years ahead of anticipated 5G rollout.”

The live large scale demonstration will run over a European test bed with a local frontend in Barcelona that features about 200 users watching an HTTP-level video. InterDigital will demonstrate a 10x multicast gain as well as a reduction in server load through multicast delivery of HTTP responses in a HLS video streaming scenario. The demonstration will also showcase latency reduction and video quality improvement through runtime integration of surrogate servers.

Please feel free to visit the demonstration at InterDigital's booth in Hall 7, Stand 7A71.
