Reliability Gains of Infrastructure Programmability in an Optical C-RAN
Paper in proceeding, 2018

We study the interplay of optical, wireless, and control domains in a software-defined C-RAN architecture in terms of survivability. Our analysis indicates the significant advantage of optical network programmability under a negligible fronthaul latency penalty.
