Ergodic capacity of internet of things’ devices in presence of channel state information imperfection

Dinh-Thuan Do, Anh-Tu Le


Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is deployed to improve spectral efficiency for applications in fifth generation networks. NOMA system splits power domain to many parts to further serve massive users by relaxing the orthogonal use of radioresources. In this paper, a relay is required to help the source communicate with destinations with a fixed power allocation scheme. We derive expressions to highlight ergodic performance of two users the deployment of NOMA is suitable to different rate requirements from destinations (e.g., a cellular users have different requirements compared with internet of things devices). By conducting Monte-Carlo simulations, we find main system parameters which have crucial impacts on ergodic capacity. This paper is different other recent studies since we emphasize on imperfect channel state information (CSI) and Rician fading model for our analytical results.
