Fronthaul Leverages Virtualization for 5G-Ready V-RAN

by Nick Marshall | 2Q 2017 | IN-4548

At ABI Research, we are continuously looking for innovation in network technologies and one of the areas undergoing significant changes in the run up to 5G is transport or fronthaul. We believe that the RAN is evolving from traditional Distributed RAN (D-RAN) and Centralized RAN (C-RAN) architectures to a Virtual RAN (V-RAN) and that these changes fundamentally alter the relationship and partitioning in the basestation between the radios, basebands, data centers, and the underlying transport or fronthaul interconnecting them.
