16.1 Introduction

5G and other future wireless systems promise the user access to services that require considerably higher data rates in spite of the limited wireless spectrum. This demand for higher data rates entails achieving superior performance and efficiency in terms of wireless resources utilization. Previous generations of mobile communication mainly depended on half-duplex transmission schemes, in which the transmitted and received signals are separated either:

  • in the time domain: time division duplexing (TDD), as in Figure 16.1(a)
  • in the frequency domain: frequency division duplexing (FDD), as in Figure 16.1(b)
  • in both: half-duplex FDD as in Figure 16.1(c).
