Abstract: Fog Radio Access Network (F-RAN) has been shown to be a promising network architecture for the 5G network. With F-RAN, certain amount of signal processing functionalities are pushed from the Base Station (BS) on the network edge to the BaseBand Units (BBU) pool located remotely in the cloud. Hence, partially centralized network operation and management can be achieved, which can greatly improve the energy and spectral efficiency of the network, in order to meet the requirements of 5G. In this work, the optimal design for both uplink and downlink of F-RAN are intensively investigated.
