The WINNER B3G System MAC Concept
Paper i proceeding, 2006

The European IST research projects WINNER and WINNER 11 aim at developing a single new ubiquitous radio access system concept that can be adapted for use in a wide variety of mobile communication scenarios, from wide area coverage to hot spots. This cellular packet data system uses a multicarrier-based air interface. Its medium access control (MAC) system layer is designed for either FDD or TDD cellular transmission. It supports adaptive transmission by tight interaction with the physical layer, and provides efficient resource allocation and scheduling within relay-enhanced cells. It also supports separate allocation of antenna resources per packet flow and furthermore provides support for spectrum sharing and flexible spectrum use. The paper outlines the resource allocation within a super-frame and the use of either opportunistic scheduling or diversity-based transmission within frames.
