Resource Optimization and Simulative Performance Evaluation of Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RAN)

In cloud radio access network (C-RAN) the baseband processing unit (BBU) is removed from the base stations (BS) and moved to a central location, allowing the sharing of resources, while the BSs only accommodate the remote radio head (RRH). In this technique the radio signals from a specific RRH may be processed by a virtual BS, which is allocated from a large physical BBU pool in order to provide flexibility to the C-RAN, while also allowing more energy efficient compliance with varying traffic. The allocation of the workload between the processing units needs to be such that optimum efficiency is achieved, e.g., overuse of a single unit may lead to rise in temperature and degrade its performance. The aim of this project is to model the pool of processing units and optimize their performance under varying traffic.

The performance of the system will be investigated and evaluated in Matlab or C++. In this project students are required to develop a graphical interface to represent the processing load on each central processing unit (CPU) within C-RAN as well as implementation of the optimization problem.


The first meeting for the institute project is on Wednesday, 26.04.17, 2 p.m., in ICT cubes Room 333.
