5G radio access networks : centralized RAN, cloud-RAN, and by Hrishikesh Venkataraman, Ramona Trestian

By Hrishikesh Venkataraman, Ramona Trestian

C-RAN and virtualized Small cellphone expertise poses a number of significant examine demanding situations. those comprise dynamic source allocation, self-configuration within the baseband pool, excessive latency in information move among radio unit and baseband unit, the price of facts supply, excessive quantity of information within the community, software program networking facets, capability strength discounts, defense issues, privateness of user’s own facts at a distant position, barriers of virtualized surroundings, and so on. This e-book presents deeper insights into the subsequent new release RAN structure and surveys the coexistence of SDN, C-RAN and Small Cells options proposed within the literature at diversified levels.

Software Radio: A Modern Approach to Radio Engineering

I often count on any publication popping out of a college to be hugely theoretical and math-centric, yet this booklet is neither. it is a transparent exposition of software program radio thoughts and concerns, with loads of consciousness paid to sign new release and processing. in contrast to one other reviewer, i used to be chuffed to work out 70 pages dedicated to clever antennas, because any multi-protocol transceiver working within the GHz diversity goes to want them.

Sample Rate Conversion in Software Configurable Radios

This authoritative, modern source offers a complete evaluate of pattern cost conversion (SRC) and its functions in software program configurable radios. The e-book is helping you recognize the boundaries of possible platforms for pattern expense conversion, in addition to the boundaries of interpolation. You get sound recommendation on choosing the fitting forms of SRC for particular purposes, and assistance in dealing with the trade-off among complexity and the clock price of a approach.

The Radio Spectrum: Managing a Strategic Resource

Radio frequencies became a easy source for the advance of the data society. in truth, radio waves are a compulsory automobile as a way to hold the message to consumers and a very world wide verbal exchange wishes their houses. Given the marketplace calls for for increasingly more frequencies, capacity must be stumbled on to percentage this restricted source such a lot successfully and to constantly increase its potency.

Extra resources for 5G radio access networks : centralized RAN, cloud-RAN, and virtualization of small cells

Example text

These computing resources are virtualized by means of the VMs. The efficient deployment of the SCM is supposed to minimize supplementary protocol data overhead, implementation complexity, impact on current LTE-A, cost of deployment, and operation and maintenance [6]. 3. 3 denoted as Option 1 ) is to place the SCM directly in the EPC, since it is under the supervision of a mobile operator. The advantage of this approach consists of the possibility to exploit the computing power of all SCeNBces connected to the network.

2, we provide an overview of 4G mobile network architecture and a potential centralized solution for the management of the SCC. 3, we outline novel approaches for the decentralized management of the SCC and its integration into 5G mobile networks based on C-RAN. 4 defines a protocol for the SCC management in the developed architecture. 5, we analyze the proposed signaling messages along with additional overhead introduced at other layers of the open systems interconnection (OSI) model. 6. The last section summarizes the chapter, provides major conclusions, and discusses possible future work.

Computational load of the VMs) [14]. Such a control entity, denoted as a small cell cloud manager (SCM), should be tightly integrated into the mobile network architecture [15]. From the operator’s point of view, the simplest and the easiest option to begin with is to merge the SCM with an existing node in the network, for example, a mobility management entity in the core network, a baseband unit (BBU) in C-RAN, or a femtocell gateway, if available (see [6]). To prevent negative aspects of strict mobile network timings or the overloading of existing hardware, the SCM is implemented as additional hardware dedicated to computing management.
