Active Standard

IEEE 1914.1-2019

IEEE Standard for Packet-based Fronthaul Transport Networks

The architecture and requirements for next generation fronthaul networks are specified in this standard. NGFI-I is defined as the next generation fronthaul network with low layer splits in a baseband station. NGFI-II is defined as the next generation fronthaul network with high layer splits in a baseband station. The requirements of fronthaul transport nodes in these networks are also specified.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


P1914.3

Standard for Radio over Ethernet Encapsulations and Mappings

This standard defines the encapsulation and mapping of radio protocols transported over Ethernet frames and Internet Protocol (IP) packets and the operation of mappers and de-mappers. 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 normal and compressed digitized radio in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) payload. Specifications are provided for parameters, control messages, and mechanisms that are used to operate, administrate, and maintain mappers and de-mappers. A management model and a YANG data model are defined.

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


1914.3-2018

IEEE Standard for Radio over Ethernet Encapsulations and Mappings

The encapsulation and mapping of radio protocols for transport over Ethernet frames, using radio over Ethernet (RoE), are defined in this standard. Structure-agnostic definitions are provided for any digitized radio data. Structure-aware definitions are provided for the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI(TM)). Native mode definitions are provided for digitized radio in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) payload.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
