Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in cellular networks enables Internet of Things in the macro geographical regions and is a promising technique in next-generation wireless networks. In this paper, we study energy-efficient clustering design in cellular networks to maximize the overall network battery life time. We propose a new clustering design which finds the optimal number of clusters in a cellular network, and maximizes the network energy efficiency, meanwhile rules of selecting and… CONTINUE READING
