Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is a next-generation multiple access technology to improve users' throughput and spectral efficiency for 5G and beyond cellular networks. Similarly, coordinated multi-point transmission and reception (CoMP) is an existing technology to improve the coverage of cell-edge users. Hence, NOMA with CoMP can potentially enhance the throughput and coverage of the users. However, the order of implementation of CoMP and NOMA can significantly impact the system performance of Ultra-dense networks (UDNs). Motivated by this, we study the performance of the CoMP and NOMA-based UDN by proposing two kinds of user grouping and pairing schemes that differ in the order in which CoMP and NOMA are performed for a group of users. Detailed simulation results are presented, comparing the proposed schemes with the state-of-the-art systems with varying user and base station densities. Through numerical results, we show that the proposed schemes can be used to achieve a suitable coverage-throughout trade-off in UDNs. © 2022 IEEE.
