This article first identifies requirements of 5G radio propagation models for relevant propagation scenarios and link types derived from the analysis of recently discussed 5G visions and respective 5G technology trends. A literature survey reveals that none of the state-of-the-art propagation models such as WINNER/IMT-Advanced, COST 2100, and IEEE 802.11 fully satisfies the model requirements without significant extensions, and therefore there is room for a new framework of propagation models. We then present a novel map-based propagation model that satisfies the model requirements, and also introduce new extensions to existing stochastic models. Several open issues are finally identified that require further studies in 5G propagation modeling.
