  • Green MTC, M2M, Internet of Things

    The capability of having any type of object interconnected and Internet‐connected creates an unprecedented access and exchange of information that has been baptized as the Internet of Things (IoT). With the advancement of integrated technologies, improved batteries, and electronic miniaturization, everyday things will be equipped with sensors and microprocessors to collect information around them and execute smart applications. In addition, they will be able to communicate with each other. The IoT has the potential to revolutionize innovations; create new products, services, business; and reshape consumer's behavior. IoT represents a major player for the future of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT).The development of the IoT must be environment friendly. ICT have shown to be a key contributor to global warming and environmental pollution; it is predicted that the global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ICT will account for 12% of all emissions by 2020 at a growth rate of 6% per year. Therefore, it is mandatory to develop environmentally friendly ‐ or "green" ‐ technologies for the IoT, and ICT in general.Machine‐to‐Machine (M2M) communications constitute a fundamental part of the IoT. The term M2M refers to the exchange of data between two or more entities, objects, or machines that do not necessarily need human interaction. The envisioned market for such kind of communications is broader than the one traditional human‐based communications in terms of number of users and variety of applications. Some forecasts predict figures up to 50 billion machines that will be connecting to communication networks by 2020. This is a very big number compared to the entire world p opulation of around 7 billion people. Therefore, there are some challenges that need to be addressed in order to fully supportM2Mservices in current communication networks. From the technical point of view, M2M communications are substantially different from Human‐to‐Human (H2H) communications. For example, network operators should provide communication services at low cost in order to face the low Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). Despite the large number of expected M2M connections, most of them will generate very little and infrequent data traffic. Communication networks shall also provide suitable congestion and overload control solutions in order to handle a huge number of simultaneous connections. Features such as low mobility, time‐controlled data delivery, group‐based policing and addressing, low connection delays, and a wide variety of Quality of Service requirements are among other challenges that need to be addressed. All of them must have the "green" concept embedded. In order to ensure that devices can operate autonomously for years or even decades without human intervention, it is necessary to provide networks with highly efficient communication protocols. This is the main focus of this chapter.The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) created in 2009 a dedicated technical committee to identify key M2M use cases, understand the service requirements, and promote standards for the complete end‐to‐end M2M functional architecture. Later, in 2012, the global One M2M project was also established by ETSI, with other international standardization bodies, in order to define M2M standards that can accelerate the deployment and success of M2M applications.

  • The Wireless Standards Point of View

    A final set of constraints that drive the functionalities to be embedded in a transceiver as well as their performance come from the requirements set by the wireless standard we want to address. This chapter gives a quick overview of the classical metrics in order to understand the underlying network system constraints. The classical metrics include metrics for transmitters and metrics for receivers. By a "medium access strategy" the authors mean the strategy that is used by a wireless system in order to share in an optimal way the limited radio resource, i.e. the radio frequency band in practice, between on the one hand the different users and on the other hand the uplink and the downlink. Finally, the chapter gives a quick overview of the different strategies classically used to achieve these two goals, with the aim of examining the associated implementation constraints for transceivers.

  • Design Considerations of Biomedical Telemetry Devices

    The specifications for an implantable medical device (IMD) are provided by the application but share a common set of constraints in size, power, and functionality. This chapter provides a brief overview of the design of biomedical telemetry devices and in particular IMDs using inductive links. The basic system architecture and inductive link fundamentals are discussed, as well as methods and circuits for power transfer and data communication. Safety issues relating to overheating of body tissue as a result of increase of temperature are also examined. There are several methods of harvesting energy for IMDs such as kinetic, thermoelectric, fuel cells, infrared radiation, low- frequency magnetic fields, and inductive links. Data communication is called the downlink from the transmitter to the implant, and the uplink from the implant to the transmitter. Due to dual data and power transfer, the carrier amplitude is greater than or equal to the supply voltages.

  • Massive MIMO

    MIMO systems with large number of antennas, referred to as massive MIMO, are able to provide high antenna directivity and thus a high level of interference suppression. This chapter provides many ways to maximize the weighted sum rate in a linearly precoded multicellular downlink system where the receivers are equipped with a single antenna. antenna. It also considers the weighted sum rate maximization (WSRM) problem in the downlink of a multicellular setting with linear precoding by relaxing the stringent assumption of perfect channel state information (CSI) manly along the lines. The WSRM problem is a challenging nonconvex problem. In fact, recently it has been shown to be strongly NP‐hard even in the case of perfect CSI availability. Hence, we need to find the approximate solution of the problem. Finally the chapter presents a short procedure that outlines steps needed to solve the robust WSRM problem.

  • 3GPP Network Types

    The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) was formed to coordinate the development of 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), but also inherited responsibility for 2G Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). GSM uses multi‐frequency network techniques, and each cell or sector generated by a base transceiver station (BTS) can consist of one more separate radio carriers. 3G UMTS networks were developed by 3GPP as an evolution of the popular 2G GSM standard. 3GPP developed a successor to 3G UMTS known as Long Term Evolution (LTE). A 3.5G evolution of UMTS, known as High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), was developed by 3GPP; several iterations of HSPA and HSPA + have been subsequently released. In LTE‐Advanced (LTE‐A) signalling and control activities all take place via one cell, known as the Primary Cell (PCell); additional traffic connections can be established via up to four Secondary Cells (SCells).
