    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Cloud radio access network (C-RAN) is a recent&amp;nbsp;trend of RAN architecture positioned to help the operators to&amp;nbsp;address challenges of new wireless services, such as emerging&amp;nbsp;4G and 5G mobile networks. C-RAN uses baseband processing&amp;nbsp;units in a central server which connects to the radio front-ends&amp;nbsp;at cell sites via the so-called fronthaul network. The fronthaul&amp;nbsp;infrastructure is currently provided by CPRI (Common Public&lt;br&gt;
Radio Interface) and OBSAI (Open Basestation Architecture&amp;nbsp;Initiative) industry standards which use dedicated optical links&amp;nbsp;with high deployment costs. An alternative is to use Ethernet&amp;nbsp;technology aiming to reuse of network infrastructure available&amp;nbsp;in many commercial buildings. However, in contrast to the&lt;br&gt;
traditional synchronous fronthaul, Ethernet suffers with packet&amp;nbsp;delay variation (PDV) and challenging synchronization recovery.&lt;br&gt;
This work presents a complete and flexible testbed to evaluate&amp;nbsp;Ethernet-based fronthaul. The system is validated via extensive&amp;nbsp;measurements that show the effects of synchronization procedures&amp;nbsp;and network impairments on regenerated clock phase&amp;nbsp;noise.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
