This paper deals with the capability of the orthogonal chirp division multiplexing (OCDM) modulation scheme to cope with multi-numerology concept in the context of next generations of communications. The OCDM-based multi-numerology transceiver is introduced, and the inter-numerology interference (INI) is analytically derived. The case of filtered-OCDM is considered as well, allowing to both reduce the INI and to shape the power spectrum of the composite signal (i.e. the signal composed of unitary signals configured with different numerologies) according to strong constraints of low out-of-band emissions. The simulations results show the inherent robustness of OCDM against INI as the interference is spread over all subcarriers, whereas it is concentrated in particular subcarriers in OFDM. It results that the (filtered)-OCDM waveform largely outperforms the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in term of bit error rate (BER) performance, without need for a guard-band between numerologies.
