Packet aggregation for machine type communications in LTE with random access channel

Abstract

A packet aggregation method is proposed in this paper to lower the packet collision rate when the random access channel is used for machine type communications (MTC) uplink channel access in LTE. With the proposed packet aggregation method, a UE triggers random access when the aggregated packets in the buffer reaches the given threshold. However, this… (More)
