The transition to C-RAN and fronthaul has started with operators gradually moving to the new architecture to realize a better utilization of network resources. We discussed with Femi Adeyemi at Fujtsu the drivers and benefits of C-RAN over the traditional distributed architecture for RAN optimization.

Data traffic is typically very spiky. Even during congestion periods, wireless networks transmission alternates between spikes and valleys and this limit the efficient utilization of the available resources. We talked to John Reister, VP of Marketing and Product Management, Vasona Networks, about how mobile operators can take control of the spikiness and manage traffic to optimize RAN utilization.

I have been following the evolution of backhaul solutions for a while because backhaul is crucial to the small-cell business case. The reason for this is simple: backhaul accounts for up twice as much of the percentage of the TCO for small cells than it does for macro cells. As it is always the case with wireless TCOs, most of it comes from the opex. While equipment cost is an important variable, the key issue is that the backhaul solution has to be low cost to install, maintain, and operate

Backhaul is still one of the hottest topics in the small-cell community, and rightly so. This is an area of intense innovation, driven by many new entrants and an increased presence of established backhaul vendors, where much work is still needed to ensure that backhaul does not become the cost and performance bottleneck in small-cell deployments.
