Bigger, faster, higher? The appetite for broad-band has clearly fueled the development of mobile cellular networks. On the other hand, the successful deployment of killer applications in the past 20 years has had a major impact on the markets as well: First and foremost, the need for unteth-ered telephony and, with it, wireless real-time voice communication(More)
— LTE and LTE-Advanced have been optimized to deliver high bandwidth pipes to wireless users. The transport mechanisms have been tailored to maximize single cell performance by enforcing strict synchronism and orthogonality within a single cell and within a single contiguous frequency band. Various emerging trends reveal major shortcomings of those design(More)
5GNOW ('5th Generation Non-orthogonal Waveforms', FP7 ICT Call 8 project supported by the European Commission) will question the design targets of LTE and LTE-Advanced and the obedience to strict synchronism and orthogonality will be challenged. It will develop new PHY and MAC layer concepts being better suited to meet the upcoming needs with respect to(More)
—This paper reports intermediate transceiver and frame structure concepts and corresponding results from the European FP7 research project 5GNOW. The core is the unified frame structure concept which supports an integrated 5G air interface, capable of dealing both with broadband data services and small packet services within the same band. It is essential(More)
