Multiple access is one of the core technologies of wireless communications, which enables wireless base stations to deal with a large number of different users and provide the service for each of them at the same time.  Meeting the 5G challenges, non-orthogonal multiple access is the main concerned point in 5G technologies. In this paper, two types of non-orthogonal multiple access schemes, namely, 5-ary Multi User Shared Access (MUSA) and Sparse Code Multiple Access (SCMA), are studied. The Bit Error Rate performance (BER) analysis in terms of user overloading for an uplink 5-ary MUSA and SCMA systems are analyzed.
