The 5G ESSENCE project addresses the combination of Small Cell as a Service and edge cloud computing through a flexible two-tier architecture that can be adapted to the needs of different small cell deployment scenarios. This paper shows, by means of different illustrative examples, how this architecture can accommodate the different functional splits for decomposing the gNB of the 5G NG-RAN architecture into a centralized and a distributed unit that are considered by 3GPP.
