Phluido and a global MNO demonstrate Coordinated Multi-Point over Ethernet fronthaul

Phluido, in collaboration with a global mobile network operator, demonstrated a fully virtualized, centralized LTE-A radio access network based on Phluido proprietary RaaS-FIP technology. The system featured Phluido virtualized baseband, along with 3 radio units providing mobile capacity to commercial mobile phones. The feasibility of coordinated multipoint (CoMP), for both downlink (joint transmission) and uplink (joint reception), was demonstrated even in harsh fronthaul scenarios, such as with limited and varying capacity, and with fronthaul latency as high as several ms.
