The cloud radio access network (C-RAN) has been deemed a cost-effective architecture for exploiting the capacity benefit of densely deployed radio access points. The low-latency fronthaul data transmission from the central processor to small-cell base stations (SBSs) is a key requirement in C-RANs for which conventional wired fronthaul links will be cost-prohibitive and also inconvenient. Therefore, scalable and low-cost wireless fronthaul solutions have drawn much attention in both industry… CONTINUE READING
