When Multicast and Full-duplex Meet NOMA: Orthogonality versus Non-orthogonality

Room:
Cohort Classroom 11
Prof Pingzhi Fan, Southwest Jiaotong University
Abstract: Next generation wireless networks are expected to support very diverse traffics with much tighter requirements, such as massive connectivity, better quality of service, higher throughput, lower latency, or lower control signaling overhead, which should be met with various new techniques such as non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) design. Different from conventional orthogonal multiple access (OMA) techniques, NOMA techniques can make more efficient use of transmission resources. On the other hand, mobile broadcast/multicast can significantly improve spectrum efficiency by using point-to-multipoint (PTM) mechanism which distributes the media content to all/partial interested users; the spectral efficiency of full-duplex (FD) bidirectional and cooperative communications can be doubled, provided that the severe self interference (SI) can be efficiently eliminated. In this talk, basic orthogonal and non-orthogonal MA techniques shall be firstly outlined, then, based on our recent research, the co-existence of NOMA/Multicast, NOMA/FD, and NOMA/Relaying, shall be presented.
