Cloud radio access network (C-RAN) has emerged as a promising solution to support exponentially increasing demand in data rate. The attractive capacity enhancement mainly comes from centralized and coordinated processing, which poses great challenges on computing capability in the baseband unit pool. This requires the efficient allocation of computing resources to minimize the hardware and energy costs of C-RANs. Therefore, in this letter, we first model the computing resource consumption of… CONTINUE READING
