Deliverable D3.2 – Final report on the holistic link solution adaptation

The FANTASTIC-5G project advocates a single air interface for 5G, which is flexible, versatile, scalable and efficient in order to address the requirements of the IMT 2020. The flexibility featured by the FANTASTIC-5G air interface allows the support of a multitude of services and applications with diverse requirements, and shall be ready to provide solutions for future use cases not yet foreseen. This document reports on the recent outcomes of the research on link design, which are presented in a concise form, including a summary of the research motivation, the final outcomes and topic conclusions. The involved topics include the signal design as well as the framework of frame and physical layer procedure design, which provides a quite complete concept of a holistic physical layer air-interface design for future 5G system.
