Performance Evaluation of VEnodeb Using Virtualized Radio Resource Management

Authors(3) :-Afzal Ahmad, Mohammad Asif, Shaikh Rohan Ali

With the demand upsurge for high bandwidth services, continuous increase in the number of cellular subscriptions, adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), and marked growth in MachinetoMachine (M2M) tract, there is great stress exerted on cellular network infrastructure. The present wire line and wireless networking technologies are rigid in nature and heavily hardware dependent. The embrace of SDN in traditional cellular networks has led to the implementation of vital network functions in the form of software that are deployed in virtualized environments. This approach to move crucial and hardware intensive network functions to virtual environments is collectively referred to as network function virtualization (NFV).we implement a virtualized eNodeB component (Radio Resource Management) to add agility to the network setup and improve performance, which we compare with a traditional resource manager. When combined with dynamic network resource allocation techniques proposed in Elastic Hando. Agnostic approach can achieve a greater reduction in capital and operational expenses through optimal use of network resources and client energy utilization to better handle these agreements under peak network load.
