Abstract-- A novel reservation Aloha scheme is presented
for OFDMA systems. The proposed scheme is based on two
dimensional reservation in time and frequency. The proposed
approach is compared to other OFDMA extensions of reserva-
tion Aloha. The proposed scheme is shown to be superior in
terms of increasing sum-rate, reducing the number of users in
outage, and reducing the collision probability in the reservation
Index Terms-- OFDMA, reservation Aloha, opportunistic
transmission, probabilistic scheduling
Aloha is one of the first algorithms for random access [1],
[2]. Aloha is commonly studied under a single channel
assumption, in which user contention happens over only
