Next generation M2M cellular networks: challenges and practical considerations

  title={Next generation M2M cellular networks: challenges and practical considerations},
  author={Abdelmohsen Ali and Walaa Hamouda and Murat Uysal},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
In this article we present the major challenges of future machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular networks such as spectrum scarcity, and support for a large number of low-power, lowcost devices. As an integral part of the future Internet-of-Things (IoT), the true vision of M2M communications cannot be reached with conventional solutions that are typically cost inefficient. The cognitive radio concept has emerged to address spectrum under-utilization and scarcity. The heterogeneous network model is… CONTINUE READING
