The Wireless Network Cloud (WNC) [1] is a novel network architecture where wireless base-stations are implemented as software modules and multiple base-stations are consolidated to a single centralized computing platform. Due to the time-varying and random nature of base-station traffic, consolidation leads to multiplexing of statistically-varying basestation loads on a common hardware platform. In turn, this can lead to significant hardware reduction in the consolidated platform when compared… CONTINUE READING
