Atlanta, Georgia, December 13th, 2013
The last decades brought an exponential increase in mobile traffic volume. This will continue and a 1000-fold increase by 2020 has been forecasted. Hence, mobile communication networks and mobile user behaviour are permanently evolving.
This workshop explores novel concepts to allow for flexibly centralised radio access networks using cloud-processing based on open IT platforms, and to allow for a high quality of experience for mobile access to cloud-processing resources. This requires new concepts for the design, operation, and optimization of radio access networks, backhaul networks, operation and management algorithms, and architectural elements, tightly integrating mobile networks and cloud-processing. This workshop will cover technologies across PHY, MAC, and network layer, it covers technologies which translate the cloud-paradigm to the radio access and backhaul network. It will study the requirements, constraints, and implications for mobile communication networks, both, from an academic and industrial point of view.
