The main object of this thesis is to utilize the Vienna 5G link-level simulator and to introduce modifications which are needed to include new scenarios, such as remote area case. The Vienna 5G link-level simulator is a simulation platform for promoting 5th generation (5G) research and development for the mobile communications system. This work gives a general overview of the link-level simulator platform to evaluate the average performance of the 5G physical layer (PHY) schemes.

In many places across the world, there is no reliable internet connectivity in remote areas. Remote area connectivity is a kind of "missing scenario" of standard 5G solution, which focuses on improved data rate, latency, and massive internet of things (IoT). This work addresses views of connectivity in remote areas with 5G solutions, focusing on wireless radio technologies. The study of 5G physical layer performance evaluation is performed for downlink transmission using single-input and single-output (SISO) techniques. This thesis focused on the performance of waveforms, which can be effectively used in remote area communication systems. The analysis of the simulation results signifies that generalized frequency division multiplexing (GFDM) would be the better option for remote area communication than other waveforms investigated in this study. This work also focused on the performance of channel coding schemes in order to determine the appropriate channel coding scheme for the 5G mobile communication system for medium length message transmission in remote area communication. The polar code appears to be the best possible channel code for medium-length message data transmission in remote areas based on the study of channel coding schemes.
