Mobile central office re-architected as a datacenter (M-CORD)

Mobile central office re-architected as a datacenter (M-CORD) is an open source platform enabling 5G mobile networks, which is built on software defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV) and cloud technologies. It includes virtualized Radio Access Network (RAN) and virtualized evolved packet core (vEPC) to enable mobile edge applications and services. The reference implementation of the M-CORD is based on commodity servers, white-box fabric switches, disaggregated access technologies and open source software providing virtualization […]

Radio resource management (RRM) can be seen as a bundle of network optimization functions aimed at efficiently utilizing the limited radio frequency spectrum resources and radio network infrastructure. The main functions may contain: a) radio resource allocation among macrocell and small cells; b) packets scheduling – physical resource block (PRB) allocation for maximizing the cell spectral efficiency and cell throughput; c) link adaptation – adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), and […]
