The advances mobile communications has seen in recent years has rendered the radio spectrum a limited and, hence, an expensive resource. Therefore, technologies that support unlicensed access to spectrum are needed. Therefore, the adoption of novel modulation schemes becomes of utmost importance to obtain better spectral-localization and reduce the OOBE (Out of Band Emission) inherent to OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) and, consequently, mitigating the interference between secondary (unlicensed) and primary users. In this scenario, we access the gain in the bit error probability using f-OFDM in MIMO systems, both used in the 5G RANGE project.
