Broadcast and Multicast Communication Enablers for the 5th-Generation of Wireless Systems. 

The 5G-Xcast system shall exploit delivery modes for unicast, multicast, broadcast as well as local caching. It will also devise strategies to facilitate the migration of media content and services from legacy systems. In developing media delivery solutions, the project will take account of the wider use ranges of 5G including services to vehicles, public safety and health, and Internet of Things (IoT). 5G-Xcast will take a resolutely practical approach with comprehensive specifications, proofs of concept prototypes and demonstrations.
