Virtualisation of cellular networks can be seen as a way to significantly
reduce the complexity of processes, required nowadays to provide reliable
cellular networks. The Future Communication Architecture for Mobile Cloud
Services: Mobile Cloud Networking (MCN) is a EU FP7 Large-scale Integrating
Project (IP) funded by the European Commission that is focusing on cloud
computing concepts to achieve virtualisation of cellular networks. It aims
at the development of a fully cloud-based mobile communication and
application platform, or more specifically, it aims to investigate,
implement and evaluate the technological foundations for the mobile
communication system of Long Term Evolution (LTE), based on Mobile Network
plus Decentralized Computing plus Smart Storage offered as one atomic
service: On-Demand, Elastic and Pay-As-You-Go. This paper provides a brief
overview of the MCN project and discusses the challenges that need to be
