A Survey of MAC Layer Issues and Protocols for Machine-to-Machine Communications

  title={A Survey of MAC Layer Issues and Protocols for Machine-to-Machine Communications},
  author={Ajinkya Rajandekar and Biplab Sikdar},
  journal={IEEE Internet of Things Journal},
With the growing interest in the use of autonomous computing, sensing and actuating devices for various applications such as smart grids, home networking, smart environments and cities, health care, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication has become an important networking paradigm. However, in order to fully exploit the applications facilitated by M2M communications, adequate support from all layers in the network stack must first be provided in order to meet their service requirements… CONTINUE READING
