A taxonomy on power optimization techniques for fifth-generation heterogenous non-orthogonal multiple access networks

Vishalakshi Vishalakshi, Gangadhar Shivsharanappa Biradar


Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is an anticipated technology for fifth-generation networks for increasing mass connectivity, spectrum efficiency, user-fairness, and higher capacity. NOMA allows end-clients to share indistinguishable radio resources such as spreading code, subcarrier, and time slots simultaneously. Thus, the main challenge involved in conceptualizing effective NOMA design is selection of resource allocation (i.e., user clustering, power allocation, and quality-of-service (QoS) assurance) algorithms. NOMA can be easily integrated with current fifth-generation multi-access methodologies. In this survey paper, the NOMA methodologies are discussed, and provide an overview of the methodologies and algorithms designed for optimizing power allocation, interference management, and network selection management in the heterogenous multiple carrier NOMA. The survey highlights the current limitation of the existing resource provisioning framework and presents a solution to overcome the current limitation.
