Digital technologies are rapidly shaping the modern concepts of urbanization. It is a key element of developing practical smart cities of the future. In fact, they are the catalyst for the increasing networking of all areas of life in a smart city. Recent development in the domain of communication technologies has opened new avenues to realize the concept of smart cities. One of such communication technology is non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) for future cellular communications. This article, therefore, focuses on the interference management of uplink cellular NOMA systems. Specifically, we propose a power optimization technique for NOMA to improve the sum-rate in a multi-cell environment. We also consider Nakagami-m faded links to analyze the applicability of our proposed scheme under various channel conditions. The simulation results show that the proposed NOMA approach outperforms conventional orthogonal multiple access (OMA) technique in the multi-cell uplink scenario.
