Ultra-low latency is the most important requirement of the Tactile Internet (TI), which is one of the proposed services for the next-generation wireless network (NGWN), e.g., fifth generation (5G) network. In this paper, a new queuing model for the TI is proposed for the cloud radio access network (CRAN) architecture of the NGWN by applying power domain non-orthogonal multiple access (PD-NOMA) technology. In this model, we consider both the radio remote head (RRH) and baseband processing unit

In our setup, to minimize the transmit power of users subject to guaranteeing an acceptable delay of users, and fronthaul and access constraints, we formulate a resource allocation (RA) problem. Furthermore, we dynamically set the fronthaul and access links to minimize the total transmit power. Given that the proposed RA problem is highly non-convex, in order to solve it, we utilize diverse transformation techniques such as successive convex approximation (SCA) and difference of two convex functions (DC). Numerical results show that by dynamic adjustment of the access and fronthaul delays, transmit power reduces in comparison with the fixed approach per each connection. Also, energy efficiency of orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) and PD-NOMA are compared for our setup.
