**Case Study: Implementation Aspects of a GFDM-based Prototype for 5G Cellular Communications**

Ivan Simões Gaspar With the Vodafone Chair (Prof. Fettweis) since February 2012 Studies: Electrical Engineering (M.Sc.) at the National Institute of Telecommunications in Brazil – INATEL Research area: robust non-orthogonal multi-carrier modulation schemes for future cellular systems NI RF Roundtable 2012 December 10-11, 2012, Bristol, UK

**Motivations for 5G M2M dominating subscribers**

M2M dominating subscribers diverse requirements (high and lows) : data rate, latency, mobility, quality, security asynchronous and non-orthogonal modulation Opportunistic use of spectrum time and frequency agility accurate sensing no interferer (filtering) RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden

**Challenges RRM CoMP Wireless Access: flexible scalable content aware**

RRM flexible fine-grained sharing of fragmented spectrum CoMP High rate, low latency, interactive video, apps, increased signaling Wireless Access: flexible scalable content aware robust reliable t f vast # M2M devices low rate / complexity asynchronous access RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden

Our approach Question the strict synchronism, orthogonality and high out of band radiation of OFDM based systems with the introduction of new non-orthogonal filtered waveforms that carry the data on the physical layer. Deal with crosstalk and interference with a transceiver structure termed GFDM (Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing). Explore the tradeoff of an increased computational complexity at the Base Stations with a more flexible construction of millions of machine type communications (MTC) devices Proof of concept prototype with a highly scalable implementation on NI’s PXI platform RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden

**GFDM Transmitter Model**

generalization of OFDM 1 up to M symbols per subcarrier Pulse shaping with circular convolution (block structure - burst) Up sampling Filtering Up conversion Mapping we can achieve this in GFDM by combining several multicarrier symbols to one block, where the pulse shaping filter spans over the whole duration what we basically get is a mix between single carrier (pulse shaping) and OFDM (subcarriers) M = number of symbols per subcarrier K = number of active subcarriers RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden

6
Matrix Model, x=Ad The A matrix contains all the possible impulse responses of the system Circular impulse response whenever we filter a data sequence, the resulting signal is longer than the input these 'tails' can either be cut impacts the spectrum addressed with a GI reduces efficiency in GFDM we introduce tail biting: use circular convolution for the pulse shaping the result of this operation is then the same length as the input there was no Rx tail biting in the first version of GFDM RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden

**Low Complexity Model (Matrix)**

GFDM is a digital multicarrier system with pulse shaping each branch can be considered as a single carrier system note that we do not have the CP block here, because we are intentionally looking at the AWGN channel one of the contributions of this paper is that the whole system can be now expressed with a matrix model as a linear system, while before each subcarrier has been considered individually OFDM is a special case where rectangular pulses are used and the modulation matrix becomes an IFFT matrix RF roundtable 2012 Vodafone Chair Mobile Communications Systems TU Dresden
