This paper investigates the uplink dimensioning problem for OMA (Orthogonal Multiple Access) and NOMA (Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access) schemes. Dimensioning is to make radio resource provision for a service area to fulfill an outage constraint. The radio resource limit and outage in dimensioning make classical inhomogeneous Poisson assumption of uplink served user point process questionable. In this paper, we first prove that this process admits a homogeneous Poisson distribution in the
more » ... regime. As a consequence, uplink coverage probabilities over log-normal shadowing for both schemes are derived. Then, tractable stochastic geometry models for two schemes are proposed to obtain numbers of total required radio blocks. Their upper bounds under an outage constraint are also given to reduce computing overhead. Finally, the simulations confirm accuracy of derivations and demonstrate the effectiveness of our models.
