The large bandwidth available at mmWave frequencies coupled with the demand for ultra-low latency communications for 5G systems necessitates considerable redesigning of the cellular MAC schemes. Our recent work shows that flexible radio frame structures can give considerable improvements in throughput and latency as compared with conventional LTE-like frames. Moreover, the use of low resolution digital beamforming can be an attractive option to reduce control overheads within strict power constraints.
