  • Patent number: 11563613
    Abstract: Using residential power lines communication (PLC) as the last hop of the CPRI-based front-haul to the indoor users, where unmodified time division multiplexed (TDM) CPRI hyper-frames are transported in between the outdoor distributed unit (DU) and the indoor radio unit (RU) transparently. To countermeasure the hostile environment of power lines, proposed is a novel device, called CPRI-PLC-Gateway (CPG), which serves as an agent for creating a virtual CPRI link between the DU and RU. The proposed CPG aims to meet the desired CPRI options in the presence of the noisy PLC channel while remaining completely transparent to the CPRI protocol operation.
