This chapter presents a content-centric framework for transmission optimization in cloud radio access networks (RANs) by leveraging wireless edge caching and physical-layer multicasting. We consider a cache-enabled cloud RAN, where each base station (BS) is equipped with a local cache and connected to a central processor (CP) via a backhaul link. The BSs acquire the requested contents either from their local caches or from the core network via the backhaul links. We first study the caching effects on multicast-enabled access downlink, where users requesting the same content are grouped together and served by the same BS or BS cluster using multicasting. We study the cache-aware joint design of the content-centric BS clustering and multicast beam-forming to minimize the system total power cost and backhaul cost subject to the quality-of-service (QoS) constraints for each multicast group.
