Evolution of Fronthaul

This is the fifth in a series of blog posts on the Evolution of Fronthaul, links to past posts below. Preparing for Massive MIMO and 5G As CPRI technology is increasingly being deployed in cell densification and CRAN projects, eCPRI is starting to receive the attention of the global wireless community. As I outlined in […]

5G Fronthaul

This is the fourth in a series of blog posts on the Evolution of Fronthaul, links to other posts below. As wireless operators announce their plans for the introduction of 5G services, ecosystem players are developing and introducing a new range of capabilities to pave the way for a smooth transition from 4G to 5G. […]

Part 3 of the Evolution of Fronthaul Networks (read Part 1: Intro to Fronthaul and Part 2: Fiber Deployment in Wireless) In parts 1 and 2, I described the overall radio access network architecture and best practices for deployment at physical layer which is primarily fiber for the links between the base band unit (BBU) […]

Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) deployment is a growing trend in the wireless industry. I am often asked what is driving this trend, why some operators are using it more than others, and what are some of the challenges and benefits of C-RAN. In this blog, I will try to capture some of those questions […]

Spectrum, the most valuable asset for a mobile service provider, is increasingly crowded and stretched.  New applications and services depend on cleaner and wider RF channels.  No longer just a matter of coverage, spectrum like the rest of the network, is strained for capacity.  Current 4G services add more channels, wider channels, and more aggregation […]
