EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is the essence of a scientific research endeavour aspired to tackle the challenges of ever-growing data traffic in mobile networks. The contemporary mobile communication systems offer efficient services to broadband applications. However, narrowband Machine-to-Machine (M2M) data traffic handling remains still a concern. This book advocates a set of protocols for aggregation and multiplexing of M2M data traffic at an intermediate node before transmission to the core network. The devised framework is realised by two independent methods: the simulation approach and the analytical approach. The outcomes obtained through both methods are compared to validate the results. The statistical significance of simulation results is established by the determination of confidence intervals. The findings suggest significant improvements in radio resource utilisation when serving M2M traffic.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications refers to the automate exchange of information between devices for control and monitoring applications. This type of communication is not new since automated systems have been present for more than three decades. However, miniaturization of device's size, reduction of production costs and drop in communication fees (altogether with the massive adoption of real-time access of information in current society) are expanding the set of applications and solutions currently under consideration. The real complexity relies on the fact that M2M is not only an add-on communication solution, like the case of traditional human-centric broadband communications. M2M usually entails a change in the core business of an industry, since the relationship with external partners and the internal tasks can be radically modified In this paper, we anaylise the players involved in M2M communications and how they position themselves in a market which requires them to adjust their traditional business approach. The main question addressed in this work refers to "which players are investing in M2M, which is their view and how could their approach affect the current ICT sector?" We highlight the dominance and relationship between different actors and also look at barriers that prevent investments, regulations in the area and standardization efforts ...

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The scarcity of bandwidth has always been the main obstacle for providing reliable high data-rate wireless links, which are in great demand to accommodate nowadays and immediate future wireless applications. In addition, recent reports have showed inefficient usage and under-utilization of the available bandwidth. Cognitive radio (CR) has recently emerged as a promising solution to enhance the spectrum utilization, where it offers the ability for unlicensed users to access the licensed spectrum opportunistically. By allowing opportunistic spectrum access which is the main concept for the interweave network model, the overall spectrum utilization can be improved. This requires cognitive radio networks (CRNs) to consider the spectrum sensing and monitoring as an essential enabling process for the interweave network model. Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, which is the basic enabler for the Internet-of-Things (IoT), has emerged to be a key element in future networks. Machines are expected to communicate with each other exchanging information and data without human intervention. The ultimate objective of M2M communications is to construct comprehensive connections among all machines distributed over an extensive coverage area. Due to the radical change in the number of users, the network has to carefully utilize the available resources in order to maintain reasonable quality-of-service (QoS). Generally, one of the most important resources in wireless communications is the frequency spectrum. To utilize the frequency spectrum in IoT environment, it can be argued that cognitive radio concept is a possible solution from the cost and performance perspectives. Thus, supporting numerous number of machines is possible by employing dual-mode base stations which can apply cognitive radio concept in addition to the legacy licensed frequency assignment. In this thesis, a detailed review of the state of the art related to the application of spectrum sensing in CR communications is considered. We present the latest advances related to the implementation of the legacy spectrum sensing approaches. We also address the implementation challenges for cognitive radios in the direction of spectrum sensing and monitoring. We propose a novel algorithm to solve the reduced throughput issue due to the scheduled spectrum sensing and monitoring. Further, two new architectures are considered to significantly reduce the power consumption required by the CR to enable wideband sensing. Both systems rely on the 1-bit quantization at the receiver side. The system performance is analytically investigated and simulated. Also, complexity and power consumption are investigated and studied.Furthermore, we address the challenges that are expected from the next generation M2M network as an integral part of the future IoT. This mainly includes the design of low-power low-cost machine with reduced bandwidth. The trade-off between cost, feasibility, and performance are also discussed. Because of the relaxation of the frequency and spatial diversities, in addition, to enabling the extended coverage mode, initial synchronization and cell search have new challenges for cellular-enabled M2M systems. We study conventional solutions with their pros and cons including timing acquisition, cell detection, and frequency offset estimation algorithms. We provide a technique to enhance the performance in the presence of the harsh detection environment for LTE-based machines. Furthermore, we present a frequency tracking algorithm for cellular M2M systems that utilizes the new repetitive feature of the broadcast channel symbols in next generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) systems. In the direction of narrowband IoT support, we propose a cell search and initial synchronization algorithm that utilizes the new set of narrowband synchronization signals. The proposed algorithms have been simulated at very low signal to noise ratios and in different fading environments.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Abstract: Currently, the worldwide network is witnessing major efforts to transform it from being the Internet of humans only to becoming the Internet of Things (IoT). It is expected that Machine Type Communication Devices (MTCDs) will overwhelm the cellular networks with huge traffic of data that they collect from their environments to be sent to other remote MTCDs for processing thus forming what is known as Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications. Long Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) appear as the best technology to support M2M communications due to their native IP support. LTE can provide high capacity, flexible radio resource allocation and scalability, which are the required pillars for supporting the expected large numbers of deployed MTCDs. Supporting M2M communications over LTE faces many challenges. These challenges include medium access control and the allocation of radio resources among MTCDs. The problem of radio resources allocation, or scheduling, originates from the nature of M2M traffic. This traffic consists of a large number of small data packets, with specific deadlines, generated by a potentially massive number of MTCDs. M2M traffic is therefore mostly in the uplink direction, i.e. from MTCDs to the base station (known as eNB in LTE terminology). These characteristics impose some design requirements on M2M scheduling techniques such as the need to use insufficient radio resources to transmit a huge amount of traffic within certain deadlines. This presents the main motivation behind this thesis work. In this thesis, we introduce a novel M2M scheduling scheme that utilizes what we term the "statistical priority" in determining the importance of information carried by data packets. Statistical priority is calculated based on the statistical features of the data such as value similarity, trend similarity and auto-correlation. These calculations are made and then reported by the MTCDs to the serving eNBs along with other reports such as channel state. Statistical priority is then used to assign priorities to data packets so that the scarce radio resources are allocated to the MTCDs that are sending statistically important information. This would help avoid exploiting limited radio resources to carry redundant or repetitive data which is a common situation in M2M communications. In order to validate our technique, we perform a simulation-based comparison among the main scheduling techniques and our proposed statistical priority-based scheduling technique. This comparison was conducted in a network that includes different types of MTCDs, such as environmental monitoring sensors, surveillance cameras and alarms. The results show that our proposed statistical priority-based scheduler outperforms the other schedulers in terms of having the least losses of alarm data packets and the highest rate in sending critical data packets that carry non-redundant information for both environmental monitoring and video traffic. This indicates that the proposed technique is the most efficient in the utilization of limited radio resources as compared to the other techniques.
