Joint Time and Power Allocations for Uplink Nonorthogonal Multiple Access Networks
The rapid development of mobile Internet services has yielded tremendous traffic pressure on cellular radio access networks. Exploiting nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) that enables a group of mobile users (MUs) to simultaneously share a same spectrum channel for radio access provides an efficient approach to achieve the goals of ultra-high throughput and massive connectivity in future 5G network. In this paper, we propose a joint time and power allocations for uplink NOMA. We aim at minimizing the delay for transmission and the total energy consumption of all MUs when the MUs send their data to the BS, while satisfying each MU’s constrains on the transmission delay and energy consumption. Numerical results are provided to validate our proposed algorithm and the performance and advantage of our proposed joint optimization for time and power allocations for uplink NOMA.
