We present a system model based on Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM) used for SER analysis in a time-frequency grid compatible with Long Term Evolution (LTE) by implementing parameters for low latency communication of Physical Layer (PHY).

We demonstrate the variation of optimal altitude with cell area. We further analyze the impact of “Better than Nyquist” pulses on the GFDM system and evaluate SER performance.
