Tullberg, H.; Popovski, P.; Li, Z.; Uusitalo, MA.; Hoglund, A.; Bulakci, O.; Fallgren, M. Abstract-The development of every new generation of wireless communication systems starts with bold, high-level requirements and predictions of its capabilities. 5G system will not only have to surpass previous generations with respect to rate and capacity, but also address new usage scenarios with very diverse requirements, including various kinds of machine-type communication. Following this, the METIS

This article describes the most important system-level 5G features, enabled by the concept, necessary to meet the very diverse 5G requirements. System-level evaluation results of the METIS 5G system concept are presented, and we conclude that the 5G requirements can be met with the proposed system concept.
