Future cellular systems need to cope with a huge amount of data and diverse service requirements in a flexible, sustainable, green and efficient way with minimal signalling overhead. This calls for network densification, a short length wireless link, efficient and proactive control signalling and the ability to switch off the power consuming devices when they are not in use. In this direction, the conventional alwayson service and worst-case design approach has been identified as the main source of inefficiency, and a paradigm shift towards adaptive and on-demand systems is seen as a promising solution. However, the conventional radio access network (RAN) architecture limits the achievable gains due to the tight coupling between network and data access points, which in turn imposes strict coverage and signalling requirements irrespective of the spatio-temporal service demand, channel conditions or mobility profiles.

Additional Information : The widespread use of mobile internet and smart applications has led to an explosive growth in mobile data traffic, which will continue due to the emerging need of connecting people, machines, and applications in an ubiquitous manner through the mobile infrastructure. The efficient and satisfactory operation of all these densely-deployed networks hinges on a suitable backhaul and fronthaul provisioning. The research community is working to provide innovative technologies with extensive performance evaluation metrics along with the required standardisation milestones, hardware and components for a fully deployed network by 2020 and beyond. Access, Fronthaul and Backhaul Networks for 5G & Beyond provides an overview from both academic and industrial stakeholders of innovative backhaul/fronthaul solutions. Covering a wide spectrum of underlying themes ranging from the recent thrust in edge caching for backhaul relaxation to mmWave-based fronthauling for radio access networks, this book is essential reading for engineers, researchers, designers, architects, technicians, students and service providers in the field of networking, mobile and wireless and computing technologies working towards the deployment of 5G networks.
