Seminário "Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access for 5G and Beyond" - Daniel Benavides Costa


O Departamento de Engenharia Eletrotécnica em colaboração com o IEEE VTS Portugal Chapter acolheu um seminário do IEEE VTS Distinguished Lecturer Program pelo Prof. Daniel Benavides da Costa.

Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access for 5G and Beyond


Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has recently emerged not only as a new design of multiple access techniques in cellular networks, but also as a general principle of network architecture for applications beyond cellular systems. This talk will present and discuss the fundamentals of NOMA, and examine how it can be combined with other emerging communication technologies. Some new research trends and challenges will also be discussed.
