In the last years mobile devices have gained much popularity, that's why the current mobile infrastructure is becoming obsolete. Cloud-RAN arises as an excellent candidat to overcome the strong limitations of the existing infrastructure as it uses a centralized administration of the resources. However, the implementation of such infrastructure presents a significant challenge due to the strict real time requirements of the wireless standards and the implementation of efficient administration algorithms. In order to provide solutions to the problems presented above, in this project we have focused on the implementation of a Cloud-RAN infrastructure. Specifically, we have focused on the study of algorithms that allows a better use of the wireless resources. Later, we have carried out a study to analyse the feasibility of the proposed infrastructure and we have compared it with the current infrastructures. Results obtained show that Cloud-RAN allows a better management of the wireless resources thanks to its flexibility and the fact that it is totally reconfigurable. Furthermore, its implementation reduces the CAPEX/OPEX costs significantly with respect to the current infrastructure.
