Topic:

Fronthaul Compression for Cloud Radio Access Networks: an Information Theoretic View

Abstract - Cloud radio access networks (C-RANs) emerge as appealing architectures for next-generation wireless/cellular systems, where the processing/decoding is migrated from the local base-stations/radio units (RU) to control/central units (CU) in the "cloud". This is facilitated by fronthaul links connecting the RUs to the managing CUs. We consider oblivious processing at the RUs, in which the fronthaul links carry digital information about the baseband signals, in the uplink from the RUs to the CU and vice versa in the downlink. The high data rate service demands in C-RANs imply that even with fast (optical) fronthauls, let alone for heterogeneous fronthauls, efficient compression of the baseband signals is essential. In this talk we focus on advanced robust signal processing solutions emerging from network information theoretic concepts, and also review the basic approaches to this cloud network. Multi-hop fronthaul topologies are also discussed. Analysis and numerical results illustrate the considerable performance gains to be expected for different cellular models. Some interesting theoretical directions conclude the presentation.

This is joint work with S.-H. Park, O. Simeone (NJIT), and O. Sahin (InterDigital).

Biography:

Shlomo Shamai (Shitz) received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, in 1975, 1981 and 1986 respectively.

During 1975-1985 he was with the Communications Research Labs in the capacity of a Senior Research Engineer. Since 1986 he is with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, where he is now a Technion Distinguished Professor, and holds the William Fondiller Professor of Telecommunications.
