Abstract or description

Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) is a promising technology for future-generation wireless systems, with potential to contribute to the improvement of spectral efficiency. NOMA groups users into clusters, based on channel gain-difference. However, user mobility continuously changes the channel gain, which often requires re-clustering. In this paper, we study a set of re-clustering methods: arbitrary, one-by-one and Kuhn-Munkres assignment algorithm (KMAA), that expedite link re-establishment and keep the clusters interference-free, taking into account the mobility of users. The methods are applied to automatically dissociate identified users within clusters, when the gain-difference is lower than a given threshold, followed by re-association procedure, which integrates users into different clusters, maintaining an appropriate gain-difference. Experimental results show that the KMAA method improves efficiency and capacity through minimizing the number of re-clustering events, improving resource utilization, and lowering signaling overhead. Other sets of results highlight the throughput and outage probability gains of the KMAA method across a wide range of mobility scenarios. We also provide an analysis of the KMAA algorithm when applied to MIMO-NOMA, encompassing link resiliency and maintenance of average gain-difference, among users in clusters.
