Server Based Solutions for Self-Organizing Networks

The evolution of networks across generations of evolving protocols has led to a complex mixture of deployed wireless systems. Development towards 5G and the increasing use of heterogeneous networks (HetNets) to improve coverage with fill-in solutions has created an environment of growing complexity, whose management and resource allocation has become a key issue for network operators.

This paper presents the ideas and initiatives driving self-organizing networks (SONs), a key enabler for effective 5G deployment. The authors look closely at the challenge of a data center-based eNodeB pool in a Cloud RAN (C-RAN) context and present a possible solution based on open standard technologies.
