The Cloud RAN (Radio Access Network) is a hot topic in the wireless community. Cloud RAN takes its place along with small cells, distributed antenna systems (DAS), active antenna arrays (AAA) and remote radio heads (RRH) that are being considered, or in some cases deployed, to address wireless issues ranging from site acquisition, to coverage and capacity enhancement, to environmental stewardship (green base stations). This paper explores how enhanced versions of TI’s KeyStone Multicore Architecture can be used to create super-sized cloud base stations.
