Abstract

In this paper, we experimentally and numerically evaluate the performance of a common public radio interface (CPRI) over a time division multiplexed passive optical network (TDM-PON) system for accommodating densely deployed small cells in centralized-radio-access-network-based future radio access. A prototype of the CPRI over TDM-PON is developed by using Ethernet-based TDM-PON. Experimental results showed that its synchronization accuracy and latency meet the requirements of a mobile front-haul using CPRI by the implemented delay jitter reduction and low-latency bandwidth allocation techniques. An in-phase and quadrature (IQ) data compression technique is also implemented on the system to enable a higher accommodation of remote radio heads. Experiments confirmed that the compression technique meets open radio equipment interface standards in terms of latency and signal quality degradation. Numerical results showed that the technique with a 0.45 compression ratio increases the number of supportable remote radio heads from 3 to 7 for a mobile front-haul with a 100 μs latency limitation.
