EU FP7 INFSO-ICT-317669 METIS, D2.3 Components of a new air interface - building blocks and performance
This document provides intermediate results of the concepts being developed in the radio link research of METIS. For each of the technology components (TeC) within the technology component clusters (TeCC), covering flexible air interface, new waveforms, modulation and coding techniques as well as multiple access, medium access control and enablers for radio resource management, key findings and conclusions collected so far are summarized in section 2. Continuative descriptions and research outcomes are given in the annex and referred publications.
The results presented here will be extended in the further progress of the project, and they will be used in the next phase of the project to develop and refine the overall METIS system concept instantiated by the horizontal topics. The suitability of the single technology components for the overall system design being able to meet the wide range of requirements for 5G will then be evaluated.
