Multicarrier CDMA is a multiple access scheme in which modulated QAM symbols are spread over OFDMA tones by using a generally complex spreading sequence. Effectively, a QAM symbol is repeated over multiple tones. Low density signature (LDS) is a version of CDMA with low density spreading sequences allowing us to take advantage of a near optimal message(More)
Fifth generation (5G) wireless networks are expected to support very diverse applications and terminals. Massive connectivity with a large number of devices is an important requirement for 5G networks. Current LTE system is not able to efficiently support massive connectivity, especially on the uplink (UL). Among the issues that arise due to massive(More)
MTC are expected to play an essential role within future 5G systems. In the FP7 project METIS, MTC has been further classified into mMTC and uMTC. While mMTC is about wireless connectivity to tens of billions of machinetype terminals, uMTC is about availability, low latency, and high reliability. The main challenge in mMTC is scalable and efficient(More)
Sparse code multiple access (SCMA) is a new frequency domain non-orthogonal multiple-access technique which can improve spectral efficiency of wireless radio access. With SCMA, different incoming data streams are directly mapped to codewords of different multi-dimensional cookbooks, where each codeword represents a spread transmission layer. Multiple SCMA(More)
Sparse code multiple access (SCMA) is a new frequency domain non-orthogonal multiple-access technique which can enable massive connectivity and grant-free transmission in wireless radio access. With SCMA, different incoming data streams are directly mapped to codewords of different multi-dimensional cookbooks, where each codeword represents a spread(More)
Sparse code multiple access (SCMA) is a codebook- based non-orthogonal multiplexing technique. In SCMA, the procedure of bit to QAM symbol mapping and spreading of CDMA are combined together and incoming bits are directly mapped to multi-dimensional codewords of SCMA codebook sets. Due to the sparse nature of codewords, SCMA enjoys the low complexity(More)
We introduce an accurate theoretical approach for computing the symbol-error rate (SER) of an M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (M-QAM) orthogonal frequency division-multiplexing (OFDM) system in the Nyquist rate Cartesian clipping channel. The Cartesian clipper clips the high peak values of the Nyquist rate in-phase/quadrature (I/Q) components of the(More)
Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA), a non-orthogonal multiple access scheme, has been introduced as a key 5G technology to improve spectral efficiency. In this work, we propose SCMA to enable open-loop coordinated multipoint (CoMP) joint transmission (JT). The scheme combines CoMP techniques with multi-user SCMA (MU-SCMA) in downlink. This scheme provides(More)
In this paper, deliberate level clipping and turbo coding are combined to achieve an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) transmission system with a low peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) and a good performance. Using the linear approximation technique based on the minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion, we first modify the metric(More)
