Spectrum investigations and conclusions (METIS-II)
- 5G success depends on the access to contiguous, wide and globally harmonized new frequency bands. Exclusive licensed spectrum is essential for providing the expected QoS and for securing investments, shared spectrum usage (e.g. by LSA scheme) is a suitable supplementary option. METIS-II has analyzed new ways to authorize use of spectrum, targeting more dynamic and local use of spectrum, adaptive spectrum resource management (over time periods of seconds as well as the integration of new spectrum for backhaul and access. METIS-II analyzed the spectrum demand for its main use cases (xMBB, mMTC, Car2X, URLLC). A novel system concept for spectrum management and sharing as well as a holistic functional architecture has been designed, and enhanced by additional enablers (context awareness, QoS). The use of spectrum databases (similar to enhanced LSA) is foreseen, with interfaces to network and resource management.
