In this letter, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing-code division multiplexing (OFDM-CDM) using a novel 2-dimensional spreading scheme is proposed as a candidate for a next-generation multiple access scheme. Full residual frequency diversity gain can be obtained with OFDM-CDM by adapting the proposed 2-dimensional spreading scheme with a novel frequency-hopping technique. Setting the frequency-hopping pattern in proper consideration of the coherent channel bandwidth allows us to exploit both the full frequency diversity and the time diversity in any channel environment.
