The present deliverable, titled “D2.1 TERRANOVA system requirements”, focuses on the system requirements of Terabit/s Wireless Connectivity by Terahertz innovative technologies to deliver Optical Network Quality of Experience in Systems beyond 5G (TERRANOVA). Initially details the key use cases for the TERRANOVA technology and presents the description of the network architecture. In more detail, the use cases are classified into two categories, namely backhaul & fronthaul, mobile and fixed wireless access. The first category refers to fibre extender, point-to-point and redundancy applications, whereas the latter is designed to support corporate backup connection for large and SMEs, internet of things (IoT) dense environments, data centres, indoor wireless access, ad hoc networks, and last mile access. Then, it provides the networks architecture for the TERRANOVA system as well as the network elements that need to be deployed. The use cases are matched to specific technical scenarios, namely outdoor fixed point-to-point (P2P), outdoor/indoor individual point-to-multipoint (P2MP), and outdoor/indoor “quasi”-omnidirection, and the key performance requirements of each scenario are identified. Finally, we present the breakthrough novel technology concepts, including the joint design of baseband signal processing for the complete optical and wireless link, the development of broadband and spectrally efficient RF-frontends for frequencies >275 GHz, as well as channel modelling, waveforms, antenna array and multiple-access schemes design, which we are going to use in order to satisfy the presented requirements.
