In recent years, the increasing traffic demand in radio access networks (RANs) has led to considerable growth in the number of base stations (BSs), posing a serious scalability issue, including the energy consumption of BSs. Optical-access-enabled Cloud-RAN (CRAN) has been recently proposed as a next-generation access network. In CRAN, the digital unit (DU) of a conventional cell site is separated from the radio unit (RU) and moved to the “cloud” (DU cloud) for centralized signal processing and… CONTINUE READING
