5G transport network blueprint and dimensioning for a dense urban scenario
One of the objectives of METIS-II project is to facilitate discussion on scenarios, use cases, KPIs and requirements for 5G, building upon the comprehensive work conducted in the METIS-I project and taking the work of other European projects as well as other bodies such as ITU-R, NGMN, etc. into account. This paper analyses the landscape of 5G use cases and presents METIS-II 5G use cases that cover the main 5G services, have stringent requirements and whose technical solutions are expected to serve other similar use cases as well. It also links these use cases to the business cases defined by 5G PPP so that requirements of vertical industries can be taken into account when designing the 5G Radio Access Network (RAN).
