COM3: Potential Multicarrier Techniques and Waveforms for Future 5G Communication Networks
calendar_month 29 Iul 2015, 00:00
This course aims at delivering to the audience the in-depth analysis of various multicarrier (MC) waveforms and modulations techniques, which are considered now for application in the future 5G, flexible communications systems. Currently due to its great features Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technique has been already applied in various existing wireless and wired communication systems, such as DVB-T/T2/H, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.16, LTE, xDSL etc. Advanced future radio interface platforms with dynamic spectrum access (DSA) and sharing are considered to be the key technologies in making the best solution of the conflict between the inefficient usage of the frequency spectrum and the continuous evolution in the wireless communication. New flexible MC techniques are under development and include, among others: Filtered Multitone (FMT), Filter Bank Multicarrier (FBMC), Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM), Fast Convolution Filter Banks (FC-FB). The characteristics of each of above mentioned MC schemes will be analyzed in the course. There is no doubt that MC systems are considered as the most appropriate candidate for spectrum coexistence and secondary access for future 5G cognitive systems due to its flexibility in allocating different resources among different users as well as its ability to fill the spectrum holes left by the primary users (PUs). However, the use of a MC scheme with specific carrier shapes or another one will affect differently the overall performance of the communication system. Fortunately, investigations performed in many research centers and industries within the framework of European research projects such as PHYDYAS, URANUS, EMPhAtiC, 5GNOW, METIS, etc. have shown that these constraints can be alleviated e.g. by application of the so-called filter-bank based multicarrier signals. One of the main features of such approach is the great possibility for adaptation of various signal parameters (e.g. pulse shape, low out-of-band emission modulation techniques, spectrally adaptive and flexible modulation techniques, filtering techniques, etc.) which makes this solution suitable for application in future flexible radio communication systems.
