Advances In Flexible Multicarrier Waveforms For Future Wireless Communications

Future communication systems will be characterized by their needs for increased flexibility, high data rate, efficient use of the fragmented spectrum, and bandwidth-efficient handling of unsynchronized users. Heterogeneous networks (HetNet), with co-existent systems of different bandwidth characteristics, both cell-based and ad-hoc, should also be accommodated. Such scenarios include cognitive radio (e.g., the TV white space (TVWS) system) and the co-habitation of broadband data services with narrowband professional mobile radio (PMR) channels to efficiently relieve the spectrum scarcity.
