Join Dr Yuanwei Liu as he speaks about recent developments on NOMA.
Mobile data traffic, especially mobile video traffic and small but numerous IoT packets have dramatically increased in recent years with the emergence of smart phones, tablets, and various new applications. It is hence crucial to increase the network capacity to accommodate these bandwidth-thirsty applications and services.
Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), which has been recently proposed for the 3rd generation partnership project's long-term evolution advanced (3GPP-LTE-A), constitutes a promising technique of enhancing the spectral efficiency and supporting massive connectivity in the emerging beyond 5G networks by accommodating several users within the same orthogonal resource block, via multiplexing at different power levels.
By doing so, significant spectral efficiency improvements can be attained over conventional orthogonal multiple access (OMA) techniques.
Yuanwei Liu received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Queen Mary University of London in 2016. He was with the Department of Informatics, King’s College London, from 2016 to 2017, where he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. He has been a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) with the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London, since 2017.
His research interests include NOMA, 5G networks, the Internet of Things, machine learning, and stochastic geometry. He has published over 120 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers, 1 book and 3 book chapters.
