Multicarrier-Low Density Spreading Multiple Access (MC-LDSMA) is a promising technique for high data rate mobile communications. In this paper, the suitability of using MC-LDSMA in the uplink for next generation cellular systems is investigated. The performance of MC-LDSMA is evaluated and compared with current multiple access techniques, OFDMA and SC-FDMA. Specifically, Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR), Bit Error Rate (BER), spectral efficiency and fairness are considered as performance metrics. The link and system-level simulation results show that MC-LDSMA has significant performance improvements over SC-FDMA and OFDMA. It is shown that using MC-LDSMA can significantly improve the system performance in terms of required transmission power, spectral efficiency and fairness among the users.
