In future mobile networks aggregation at different levels is necessary but at the same time imposes challenges that mandate looking into new architectures. This paper presents the design consideration approach for a C-RAN based mobile aggregation network used in the EU HARP project. With this architecture fronthaul aggregation is performed which might be an option for future generation of mobile networks.
