5G-CROSSHAUL

The 5G Integrated Fronthaul/Backhaul
Short Description: 

5G integrated backhaul and fronthaul transport network enabling a flexible and software-defined reconfiguration of all networking elements in a multi-tenant and service-oriented unified management environment.

Full Description: 

5G-CROSSHAUL seeks a 5G integrated backhaul and fronthaul transport network enabling a flexible and software-defined reconfiguration of all networking elements in a multi-tenant and service-oriented unified management environment. 5G-CROSSHAUL will consist of high-capacity switches and heterogeneous transmission links interconnecting Remote Radio Heads, 5G macro and small cells, cloud-processing units and points-of-presence of the core networks of one or multiple service providers. 5G-CROSSHAUL will flexibly interconnect distributed 5G radio access and core network functions, hosted on in-network cloud nodes, through the implementation of a novel network controller, a unified data plane for all transmission technologies and latency controllable switches.
