Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) Market

Market Overview:

Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN)is the centralized baseband processing of many cells. C-RANs offer improved performance due to their ability to coordinate between cells and are also cost effective due to resource pooling. Lower total cost of ownership (TCO), improved spectral efficiency, operational expenses (OPEX) and convenient accessibility to 4G and 5G have increased C-RAN penetration and the market for it is booming boom.Global Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) Market is expected to grow during the forecast period, in 2017 the Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) market size was XX Million and in 2025 it is expected to reach XX Million with a growing CAGR of XX %.

Market dynamics:

The market is expected to witness considerable growth over the next few years owing to the adoption of Centralized-RAN architecture by mobile operators to solve the capacity and coverage problem. Mobile network operators face a series of challenges due to the exponential growth of mobile data, barely available network spectrum for expansion as well as additional regulatory limitations. It is one of the new innovative network architectures that attempt to address these challenges by providing the cooperative solution and centralized base station function.

The major challenge for implementing centralized RAN is the interface between BBU and RRU. The frequently used interface between BBU and RRU is CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) for radio signal transfer and was designed in the past for the advancement of centralized architecture.
