In this letter, we study a completion-time minimization problem by jointly optimizing time slots (TSs) and power allocation for time-critical non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) systems. The original problem is non-linear/non-convex with discrete variables, leading to high computational complexity in conventional iterative methods. Towards an efficient solution, we train deep neural networks to perform fast and high-accuracy predictions to tackle the difficult combinatorial parts, i.e., determining the minimum consumed TSs and user-TS allocation. Based on the learning-based predictions, we develop a low-complexity post-process procedure to provide feasible power allocation. The numerical results demonstrate promising improvements of the proposed scheme compared to other baseline schemes in terms of computational efficiency, approximating optimum, and feasibility guarantee.

This letter studies the admission control and network slicing design for 5G New Radio (5G-NR) systems in which the total bandwidth is sliced to support the enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and ultra reliable and low latency communication (URLLC) services. We allow traffic from the eMBB bandwidth part to be overflowed to the URLLC bandwidth part in a controlled manner. We develop a mathematical framework to analyze the blocking probabilities of both eMBB and URLLC services based on which the network slicing and admission control is jointly optimized to minimize the blocking probability of the eMBB traffic subject to the blocking probability constraint for the URLLC traffic. An efficient iterative algorithm is proposed to deal with the underlying problem. [less ▲]
