C-RAN is an acronym for Cloud Radio Access Network which consists of a Centralized baseband pool, real-time Cloud computing, Collaborative radio and a clean system. The main idea behind it is of a system architecture that can cope with the rapid development of mobile networks and accommodate next-generation networks advanced features, as well as the increasing demands for capacity and coverage. This report provides an assessment of the suitability of the C-RAN model for future dense networks in terms of coverage, capacity and energy efficiency. This report shows the comparison in performance C-RAN against the T-RAN by analyzing the different results obtained through simulations using MATLAB software. While T-RAN has been very convenient, the benefits of the C-RAN architecture are wide-ranging and some of which include the opportunities to lower the total cost of ownership for mobile operators and improve performance in the network.
