Resource allocation in the finite blocklength regime in 5g

Kartal, Özkan Tuğberk
With the enhancements in 5G Technology, URLLC (Ultra-reliable low-latency communication) Systems have become more and more important. Related to URLLC Systems with known packet arrival processes and channel conditions, many studies have been done. The objective of this thesis is to present a formulation of allocating resource blocks, modulation and coding rates to multiple short packet machine-type information flows to provide age and delay violation guarantees. The scenario is motivated by the scheduling of URLLC flows on the uplink of a 5G cellular base station. The problem involves the selections of frequency allocation policy and modulation and coding scheme (MCS) under full CSI. Moreover, the sensitivity of the information packet size on the choice of modulation and coding parameters as well as the number of resource blocks and the choice of the number of pilot symbols is demonstrated. The results of this formulation is compared with resource allocation algorithms in the literature.
