NOMA, Enhanced MU-MIMO, NAIC

 

NOMA stands for Non Orthogonal Multiple Access. Enhanced MU-MIMO stands for Enhanced Multi User MIMO and NAIC stands for Network Assisted Interference Cancellation.

Overall concept and motivations on why these concepts are being considered can be illustrated as below.

 

 

As of now (Mar 2016),  Only NAIC is officially included in 3GPP TS 36.300 / 36.331. Enhanced MU-MIMO is at the stage of TR under the name of MUST (TR 36.859) and NOMA may be combined into the activities of TR 36.859.

 

Following is the RRC components of NAIC included in Rel 12 ASN.
