Cellular systems of the Fourth Generation (4G) have been optimized to provide high data rates and reliable coverage to users. Cellular systems of the future generation will face more diverse application requirements: the demand for higher data rates exceeds 4G capabilities; battery-driven communication sensors need ultra-low power consumption; control applications require very short response times. Introducing physical layer waveforms, referred to as Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM), to address these requirements. Analyze main characteristics of the proposed waveform and highlight the main features.
