Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) is accountable for the centralized baseband processing of various cells. The networks offer enhanced performance due to their ability to coordinate between cells as well as it is cost efficient that is achieved as a result of pooling resources. Lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO), operational expenditure (OPEX), enhanced spectral efficiency, and convenient 4G and 5G accessibility are some of the primary factors that have increased the proliferation of C-RAN globally. The global cloud radio access network (C-RAN) market size was USD XX million in XXXX and is expected to grow up to USD million at a CAGR of XX% by 2025.
The global cloud radio access network (C-RAN) market is estimated to witness substantial growth during the forecast years to increasing adoption of Centralized-RAN architecture by the mobile operators in order to address the issues of capacity and coverage. The rapidly growing mobile data have led to the creation of a wide array of challenges for the mobile operators, as the sparse network spectrum availability along with additional regulatory limits exist in the telecom industry. Due to the provision of a cooperative solution and centralized base station function, C-RAN has proven to be an innovative network architecture, thereby increasing its demand in the global market.
The major challenge for implementation of the Centralized RAN is The interface between BBU and RRU is proving to be a major hurdle in the implementation of the C-RAN architecture.
The global cloud radio access network (C-RAN) market consists of both global and regional players which include Hitachi Data Systems Ltd., Cisco Systems, Inc., Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd., Intel Corporation, Ericsson AB, Agilent Technologies, Inc., Nokia Corporation, Actix International Limited, Telco Systems, Aricent Inc., Ceragon Networks Ltd., and ZTE Corporation among others.
