In this paper we present a novel configurable 5G time division duplex (TDD) frame structure, including a flexible scheduling (resource allocation) framework for wide area scenarios. The unavoidable tradeoffs between coverage, latency, and capacity are studied with the objective of deriving a 5G air interface solution that is capable of serving users with… CONTINUE READING
