This work considers the problem of radio resource sharing between enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and ultrareliable and low latency communications (URLLC), two heterogeneous 5G services. More specifically, we propose the use of a max-matching diversity (MMD) algorithm to properly allocate the channels to the eMBB users, considering both heterogeneous orthogonal multiple access (H-OMA) and heterogeneous nonorthogonal multiple access (H-NOMA) network slicing strategies. Our results indicate that MMD can simultaneously improve the eMBB achievable rate and the URLLC reliability regardless the network slicing strategy adopted.
