On the road to 5G, centralized radio access network (C-RAN) architecture is a key stepping stone. C-RAN is the next logical evolution in fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) networks, or distributed RAN (D-RAN), and involves centralizing several baseband units (BBUs) in a location away from the towers and antennas, rather than collocating BBUs with the remote radio head (RRH) on the antenna site.
In this whiteboard video, we will explore 2 specific challenges of C-RAN networks, namely the attenuation issues induced by the long distance between the BBU and the RRH, and the interconnection problems – and finally how to solve them.
This webinar will conclude with a live Q&A session!
