The Cloud-Radio Access Network (C-RAN) Market is Valued USD 4.4 billion in 2020 and projected to reach USD 22.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 26.4% During the Forecast period of 2024-2032.


The Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) is a structural design for cellular networks based on cloud computing. It is basically a radio access network that supports basic standards as well as other emerging wireless communication standards. The CRAN architecture benefits the user by providing high reliability, low cost, low latency, and high bandwidth. The C-RAN technology broadly defines its application in the wireless technology, optical and IT communication system, and several others.

Cloud-RAN is the advanced version of Centralized-RAN, whereas BBU are virtualized. It reduces the cost for maintenance of virtual BBUs as they deploy data center storages. The data centers holds efficient information exchange and is capable of performing extensive computation. As it is feasible to virtualize after centralization is achieved, cloud C-RAN exploits an amalgamation of both virtualization and centralization.
