  • Publication number: 20200296735
    Abstract: A “smart” hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) based method. In a downlink embodiment of the smart HARQ based method, a network node, using a set of one or more radio resources, transmits a first superimposed signal containing a message for a first UE and a second message for a second UE. If the network node receives a NACK from the first UE indicating that it could not decode either the first message or the second message and also receives a NACK from the second UE indicating that it could not decode the second message, the network node initially only retransmits one of the messages.

  • Publication number: 20200244407
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein provide an adaptive multiple access scheme. In some embodiments, a UE transmits a message according to a first multiple access scheme and retransmits the message according to a second multiple access scheme.

  • Publication number: 20190253845
    Abstract: A CSI-constrained UE grouping system for dense uplink NOMA systems. For example, a network node (e.g., an access point, such as a base station) determines which UEs should be grouped based on the uplink (UL) rate demand (UL traffic demand), and sends appropriate parameters to those UEs for UL transmission.

  • Publication number: 20190254043
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein provide a fairness and complexity-constrained uplink NOMA scheme. For example, various embodiments set the power/resource allocation for a particular UE (e.g., a weak UE) such that the minimum rate requirement of the UE is guaranteed, independently of the activation status of another UE (e.g., a strong UE). Additionally, in some embodiments the access point selects whether the UE uses a NOMA or OMA depending on the relative performance gain/cost of NOMA.

  • Publication number: 20190253136
    Abstract: A method for integrating access and backhaul links, the method includes: obtaining information indicating a data rate requirement for a link between a first AP and a second AP; obtaining information indicating a gain of the link between the first AP and the second AP; computing, using the gain of the link, an achievable data rate for the link between the first AP and the second AP, wherein the achievable data rate is computed based on an OMA scheme; determining that the data rate requirement is greater than the achievable data rate; and as a result of determining that the data rate requirement is greater than the achievable data rate, pairing a first UE with the first AP, such that a NOMA scheme is used for the link between the first AP and second AP and the link between the first AP and the first UE.
