Open Wireless System Cloud: An Architecture for Future Wireless Communications System

Jianwen Chen, Xiang Chen, Jing Liu, Ming Zhao

Abstract


Open Wireless System Cloud (OWSC) is a radio access network architecture for future wireless communication systems with remote radio heads, centralized wireless computation on open platforms, and cooperative wireless signal processing and management. With centralized wireless signal processing, system capacity can be increased using emerging wireless techniques, such as cognitive radio, or collaborative processing and coordinated multipoint transmission (CoMP). Centralized open computing platform provides greater flexibility as the system can simultaneously support multi-standards and services, such as 2G, 3G and 4G as well as multiple type wireless applications. With this open architecture, OWSC can serve as infrastructure for researchers and wireless resource provider and can be supplied by 3rd parties much like Amazon provides AWS today. The barrier to entry for new entrant wireless operator role is greatly reduced. This enables new business models for the future mobile networks and service providers.
