This is a presentation and a demo for both NGFI (Next Generation Fronthaul Interface) native RoE (Radio over Ethernet) with Intra PHY split implemented in it, and CPRI over Ethernet encapsulated in structure agnostic mode. Compared to CPRI, the NGFI native RoE implementation improves bandwidth usage greatly, which better supports 5G applications demanding for higher bandwidth. In the CPRI over Ethernet demonstration, bidirectional CPRI flows are recovered without error, which enables C-RAN (centralized radio access network) architecture by using Ethernet as a transport network.
