The article introduces an innovative wireless backhauling approach employing non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and automatic repeat request (ARQ) mechanisms. In this novel scheme, power allocation follows a round-robin (RR) method, ensuring equitable performance among paired users. To address the potential packet loss afterARQ, an intelligent packet repair technique is incorporated to recover the dropped packets. A key feature involves storing dropped data packets for subsequent processing before forwarding to their respective IoT devices (IoDs). The proposed methodology hinges on recognizing that interference within a dropped packet may correspond to a packet retrievable in a forthcoming transmission, facilitating recovery through iterative successive interference cancellation (SIC). Significantly, the scheme enhances data reliability without necessitating an increase in the ARQ retransmission limit, which makes it particularly suited for certain Internet of things (IoT) applications. Empirical results confirm a substantial success rate in recovering dropped packets. Notably, the iterative interference cancellation (IIC) technique demonstrated a noteworthy reduction in the packet drop rate (PDR) from 10 −1 to 10 −3 , representing a 100-fold improvement. This implies the successful recovery of 99% of the packets initially dropped in specific scenarios, showcasing the efficacy of the proposed approach.
