Design of 5g MIMO-Multicarrier: OFDM VS FBMC/OQAM

Downlink Scheduling and Resource Allocation for 5G MIMO-Multicarrier: OFDM vs FBMC/OQAM

The definition of the next generation of wireless communications, so-called 5G networks, is currently underway. Among many technical decisions, one that is particularly fundamental is the choice of the physical layer modulation format and waveform, an issue for which several alternatives have been proposed. Two of the most promising candidates are: (i) orthogonal frequency division multiple (OFDM), a conservative proposal that builds upon the huge legacy of 4G networks, and (ii) filterbank multicarrier/offset quadrature amplitude modulation (FBMC/OQAM), a progressive approach that in frequency selective channels sacrifices subcarrier orthogonality in lieu of an increased spectral efficiency. The comparative merits of OFDM and FBMC/OQAM have been well investigated over the last few years but mostly, from a purely physical layer point of view and largely neglecting how the physical layer performance translates into user-relevant metrics at the upper-layers. This project aims at presenting a comprehensive comparison of both modulation formats in terms of practical network indicators such as goodput, delay, fairness and service coverage, and under operational conditions that can be envisaged to be realistic in 5G deployments. To this end, a unifying cross-layer framework is proposed that encompasses the downlink scheduling and resource allocation procedures and that builds upon a model of the queueing process at the data-link control layer and a physical layer abstraction that can be chosen to model either OFDM or FBMC/OQAM. Extensive numerical results conclusively demonstrate that most of the apriori advantages of FBMC/OQAM over OFDM do indeed translate into improved network indicators, that is, the increase in spectral efficiency achieved by FBMC/OQAM makes up for the distortion caused by the loss of orthogonality.

We designed the project in various cases as listed below,
• ETU Channel Model
• EPA Channel Model
• OFDM-4QAM,16 QAM,32 QAM,64 QAM Modulation Methods
