Abstract
The diversity of fifth generation (5G) network use cases, multiple access technologies, and network deployments requires measures of network robustness that complement throughput-centric error rates. In this paper, we investigate robustness in nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) 5G networks through temporal network theory. We develop a graph model and analytical framework to characterize time-varying network connectedness as a function of NOMA overloading. We extend our analysis to derive lower bounds and probability expressions for the number of medium access control frames required to achieve pairwise connectivity between all network devices. We support our analytical results through simulation.
