This paper presents the control and data plane architecture design for a 5G transport solution (5G-Crosshaul) with the aim of integrating the fronthaul and backhaul network segments in a common transport stratum. The control plane relies on the SDN/NFV concept to control and orchestrate the different elements of the network (the 5G-Crosshaul Control Infrastructure, XCI). The data plane is based on an mixed optical/packet based forwarding entity (the 5G-Crosshaul Forwarding Element, XFE) which… CONTINUE READING
