Multi-antenna, Multi-node, Multi-RAT Architectures to Provide an Immersive Experience to the Early 5G Adopters
Paper in proceedings, 2016
This paper discusses transceiver radio architectures for the 5G immersive experience and for three extended use cases that will be studied in the WP5 of the EU funded mmMAGIC project. The need to provide multi-antenna and multi-node solutions in the mm-wave spectrum is emphasized, as well as the need to encompass legacy and other complementary RATs in this 5G system. The hardware imperfections that should be tackled or worked around in these challenging radio systems are also highlighted.
