Special Issue on Signal Processing Advances for Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access in Next Generation Wireless Networks

Yang Li

Recent years have witnessed the explosive growth of mobile data traffic, which has led to ever-increasing demand for high system throughput, massive user access, heterogeneous data traffic, high bandwidth efficiency, and ultra-low latency. Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has received considerable attention in both industry and academia as an efficient multiple access scheme to meet this demand. The concept of NOMA is to encourage spectrum sharing and to accommodate multiple users in the same orthogonal resource block, such as a time slot, a frequency band, and a spatial direction. By doing so, high bandwidth efficiency and massive connectivity can be attained. Because of its superior performance, NOMA has already been included in the 3rd generation partnership project long-term evolution advanced (3GPP-LTE-A) standard and the next generation digital TV standard (ATSC 3.0), while new proposals for including NOMA in the 5G New Radio (NR) have been put forward. While the principle of NOMA has been well accepted by both academia and industry, there are still many open issues related to the required signal processing. The aim of this special issue is to present solutions for signal processing and practical implementation problems related to NOMA, in order to close the gap between theory and practice. In fact, this special issue presents innovative solutions to advanced signal processing designs for of NOMA systems.

The special issue published by IEEE Journal of Selected Topics on Signal Processing in June 2019 aimed to showcase the variety of topics outlined in the Call for Papers. These papers cover a wide range of topics in the area of advanced signal processing for NOMA.
