2nd WS on 5G PHY/MAC layers Design and Hardware Aspects @EuCNC 2017
June 12, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm CEST
FANTASTIC5G, Speed5G, Flex5GWare are organising the 2nd edition of the 5G PPP workshop on 5G PHY/MAC Layers Design and Hardware Aspects Below and Above 6 GHz on June 12th at 1:30 pm, in Oulu, Finland @EuCNC.
The air interfaces for 2G, 3G, and 4G were all designed for specific use cases (limited only to voice and data communications) with a certain number of limited KPIs in mind (throughput, capacity, dropped/blocked call rates, etc.). However, 5G requires the support of a much broader class of services and consequently a very diverse family of devices and traffic characteristics. The scope of this workshop is to find the major conclusions and results of the FANTASTIC-5G, SPEED-5G and Flex5GWare projects on the design of the new 5G air interface below 6 GHz account that supports all such application constraints. This will specifically include the specific findings regarding 5G new waveforms, flexible air interface for the 5G vertical market, coexistence issues, flexible and adaptive novel MAC design, and a much more dynamic management of the available spectrum resources and advanced sensing techniques. In addition, the workshop will present enabling technology solutions for massive machine-type communication, ultra-reliable communications as well as interference mitigation with FDD and TDD providing 7-10x higher spectral efficiency over LTE 4×4 outcome. Eventually, the workshop will highlight implementation issues of the new 5G air interface for bands below and above 6 GHz, which will pose stringent requirements on the hardware platforms. For this reason, an important topic in this workshop is related to new concepts and solutions for highly performant, energy efficient and flexible hardware (both analogue and digital) in 5G networks.
