Radio over Ethernet Encapsulations and Mappings
|Publication Date:||27 September 2018|
This standard defines the encapsulation and mapping of radio protocols for transport over Ethernet frames, using radio over Ethernet (RoE). Structure-agnostic definitions are provided for any digitized radio data. Structure-aware definitions are provided for the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI™). Native mode definitions are provided for digitized radio in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) payload and control data channels
This standard enables the transfer of I/Q user-plane data, vendor-specific data, and control and management (C&M) information channels across an Ethernet-based packet-switched network. The standard fosters interoperability among implementations by defining the framing, the encapsulation of the information, and a common Ethernet Type for RoE purposes.
