Tutorial title: An overview on 5G and its enabling key radio access technologies.
Studies on 5G have gained interest worldwide as evidenced by the acceleration of efforts by governmental entities and several research bodies from both academia and industry, e.g., ITU-R, METIS/METIS-II, 5GMF, NGMN, etc. In 3GPP, 5G standardization is expected to gain real momentum starting from LTE Release 14 and 15. In this tutorial, we will introduce about 5G expected capabilities, enabling key radio access technologies, and DOCOMO ongoing proof-of-concept activities and experimental trials over a wide range of frequency bands and technologies. In more details we will explain about the possible evolutions toward a new radio access technology (RAT), including new multiple access and waveform designs, in order to address future requirements. In particular, we will explain in details about our concept, design, and performance evaluations related to non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA).
