Finite blocklength (short packet) communications with non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is regarded as an enabler for ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC). In this paper, we investigate the link-layer rate, i.e., the effective capacity, of a two-user NOMA in finite blocklength regime. The delay performance of the NOMA users is analyzed by taking into consideration the queueing delay violation probability and the transmission error probability. We further provide closed-form…
