Article
Full-text available
While 5G is being deployed and the economy and society begin to reap the associated benefits, the research and development community starts to focus on the next, 6th Generation (6G) of wireless communications. Although there are papers available in the literature on visions, requirements and technical enablers for 6G from various academic perspecti...
Article
Full-text available
The telecom industry is moving from a "horizontal" service delivery model, where services are defined independent of their consumers, toward a "vertical" delivery model, where the provided services are tailored to specific industry sectors and verticals. In order to enable this transition, an end-to-end comprehensive 5G architecture is needed, with...
Chapter
A specific feature of the 5G systems is the ability to serve very different industry needs by satisfying their specific requirements in a single network. A wide range of services can be simultaneously offered by the same 5G network, thanks to the deployment logical end‐to‐end network slices on a common infrastructure. All the domains of a telecommu...

Full-text available
One of the main objectives of the METIS-II project was to enable 5G concepts to reach and convince a wide audience from technology experts to decision makers from non-ICT industries. To achieve this objective, it was necessary to provide easy-to-understand and insightful visualization of 5G. This paper presents the visualization platform developed...
Chapter
The 5th generation (5G) of mobile and wireless communications is expected to have a large impact on society and industry that will go far beyond the information and communications technology (ICT) field. It is expected that 5G will play a key role for the automotive sector and transportation in general, for instance allowing for advanced forms of c...
Chapter
This chapter provides information on major performance evaluation frameworks that were developed for legacy and 5th generation (5G) systems. It presents performance assessments for some of the representative 5G use cases. The chapter focuses on network energy efficiency, that is, the capability of the network to operate with certain (preferably low...
Article
This paper describes full service access network operator group perspectives on the feasibility of optical access networks to carry radio access network traffic for the existing and future mobile generations. The paper discusses topics related to the evolution of radio access interfaces, such as backhaul, midhaul, and fronthaul, their transmission...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This deliverable summarizes the concept and current status of the open source visualization platform, which at this point in the timeframe of the project is able to showcase a subset of the 5G RAN design concepts investigated in METIS-II. Different alternatives for visualization are presented and the roadmap and further steps in this topic are also...
Article
While there is clarity on the wide range of applications that are to be supported by 5G cellular communications, and standardization of 5G has now started in 3GPP, there is no conclusion yet on the detailed design of the overall 5G RAN. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the 5G RAN design guidelines, key design considerations, and fu...
Book
Full-text available
Written by leading experts in 5G research, this book is a comprehensive overview of the current state of 5G. Covering everything from the most likely use cases, spectrum aspects, and a wide range of technology options to potential 5G system architectures, it is an indispensable reference for academics and professionals involved in wireless and mobi...
Article
The goal of the European ICT Project EARTH is to enhance energy efficiency of current LTE cellular networks by 50 percent, enabling operators to provide more extensive coverage, namely to less densely populated areas, while ensuring high levels of efficiency, hence, reducing the carbon footprint. In order to achieve this objective, different strate...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To meet the increasing capacity demands of future mobile networks, dense deployment of radio access nodes in combination with partly centralized processing by means of a cloud-based architecture is a promising option. In such an architecture, the design and optimization of the backhaul plays a crucial role. In this paper, we review different backha...
Conference Paper
The actual internet traffic growth is challenging the sustainability of mobile networks, therefore, the energy efficiency of the mobile communication infrastructure becomes a topic of particular relevance. Decreasing CO2 emissions and energy demands while expanding the mobile infrastructure to satisfy traffic demands is essential. In this paper the...

Article
The main drivers in the design of current radio access networks have been so far coverage and capacity to provide service and a related good quality, but new directions are emerging with growing relevance, both for existing and future networks. Among them energy efficiency is the most relevant and challenging at the same time and innovative network...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Enabling radio innovation techniques for IMT-Advanced and beyond investigated in the WINNER+ project are summarized in this paper. These techniques survey five innovation areas: Advanced Antenna Systems (AAS), Advanced Radio Resource Management (ARRM), Network Coding, Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) transmissions and Spectrum Technologies. In AAS, un...
Conference Paper
The goal of this paper is to present the main achievements reached within the WINNER+ project concerning, in particular, clustering as a way to improve the feasibility of joint processing schemes as enablers of coordinated multipoint solutions. Three different approaches are presented. First, a single and static cluster of base stations is consider...
Article
