EEE research into 5G and wireless comms wins three IEEE awards
A team of electrical engineers from The University of Manchester's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, led by Professor Zhiguo Ding, has received three awards for its contributions to the theory and applications of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) technologies.
NOMA is the latest member of multiple access technologies. The main purpose of multiple access is to design spectrally efficient user scheduling policies to ensure multiple users can be served simultaneously given scarce bandwidth resources. Multiple access technologies are therefore key to the successful evolution of modern mobile networks.
The team's work has been awarded the 2018 prizes for the:
The awards are from three different major societies in the IEEE, which is "the world's largest technical professional organisation for the advancement of technology". These are the Vehicular Technology Society, the Communication Society and the Signal Processing Society - a rare achievement in this area.
