Cloud RAN facilitates mobile communication, by helping mobile operators in delivering high quality mobile communication services, while maintaining steady growth and profitability. The Cloud RAN architecture helps in reducing CAPEX and OPEX and increases network efficiency and performance. In the present scenario, mobile data traffic is surging due to increasing broadband availability, emergence of smartphones and other devices such as laptops and tablets. This has forced mobile operators to find a cost-effective solution to cater to the increasing consumerization of IT. Cloud RAN is set to revolutionize the mobile communication industry, wherein mobile operators have already started migrating from traditional RANs to the Cloud RAN architecture.

Cloud RAN is not a replacement of traditional RAN, but an alternative approach being deployed for better utilization of network infrastructure and base stations. The concept of Cloud RAN was initiated by China Mobile and soon after, many key players such as Intel, Huawei, AlcatelLucent, Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, ZTE, IBM and Orange joined together for the development of Cloud RAN architecture.
