The 5G-EMERGE project aims at developing an integrated satellite and terrestrial system based on open standards to enable high-quality content distribution services over multi-layer IP infrastructures. Telecommunications satellites will efficiently deliver high-demand content, including streaming of live events, as close as possible to the end user – to the 'edge'. The project includes demonstrations in 5G base stations, users' homes and vehicles.
A consortium of 20 companies from six European countries will collaborate on developing the distributed edge technology and service-delivery features. SixSq's contribution includes leading the demonstration work package and providing the edge-to-cloud software infrastructure based on its Nuvla.io B2B SaaS platform and marketplace of containerised applications, as well as its open source NuvlaEdge software.
"leveraging satellite broadcast and 5G is a great opportunity to deliver the right high-density content at the right location with the right customization. However, this requires fine-tuned orchestration of the entire value chain and this is what SixSq edge-to-cloud software provides. We are no stranger to big challenges posed by ESA and EBU and are looking forward to pushing the boundaries of edge-to-cloud, bringing together the space sector, 5G and multi-media content delivery."
SixSq CEO Marc-Elian Bégin
"The 5G-Emerge project is yet another example of Ekinops' long commitment towards software innovation as a mean to add value to the telecommunications sector," commented Vincent Munière, Group Chief Technology Officer & VP R&D at Ekinops. "We are looking forward to helping set the bar in 5G services and content delivery."
For SixSq, this project is a unique opportunity to showcase its edge computing software's ability to orchestrate complex scenarios for a range of new commercial use-cases, ranging from maritime, vehicle, public transport, 5G and building applications. Working with market leaders in their domain, Nuvla.io will manage apps across the edge-to-cloud continuum.

For The Record | July 29, 2022
Remotely monitor legal proceedings with For The Record's latest digital court reporting release, FTR Gold 7.6. The software that set the industry standard for quality and efficiency now offers fluid livestreaming of audio and video to support full remote management of courtroom recording from anywhere. By eliminating geographic constraints, FTR Gold 7.6 will allow jurisdictions to connect with a broader pool of available stenographers and digital court reporters.
FTR Gold 7.6 features several upgrades from past software versions. The primary upgrade is an accelerated FTR Reporter engine, which dramatically improves the playback performance of real-time proceedings to FTR Monitor and FTR Player over a wide area network (WAN) or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. The technology records and streams content with the market-leading functionality built into the latest versions of FTR Gold Recording and Monitoring Suites, including 16 channels of high-fidelity audio and four channels of high-definition video. This allows remote court monitors and digital court reporters to simultaneously record, monitor, and livestream proceedings anywhere on the court's network—in the courthouse or across the town, county, or state.
According to Priya Sivagnanam, Technical Project Manager of For The Record, "FTR Gold 7.6 facilitates alternative workflows to support courts as they manage the escalating stenographer shortage and adapt to the demand for remote, hybrid hearings. These structural shifts in court operations are only building momentum, so this innovation arrives at a critical time. Courts will find that playback performance during remote monitoring is seamless in WAN and VDI environments. FTR Gold 7.6 is dramatically enhanced from past versions of FTR Gold."
