Abstract

Machine type communication (MTC), additionally called machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, broadly is referring to a number of cooperating machines exchange sensed data or information and make decisions with slight or zero human intervention. M2M technology will let a massive number of devices to be interconnected over the internet leading to a rapid development in recent time, which can be a promising enabling key for many areas, particularly for the internet of things (IoT) and 5th generation (5G) networks. This chapter presents a summary and state of art of M2M communications characteristics, taxonomy, applications, different technologies for deploying of M2M communications, and future challenges.

Characteristics Of M2m Communications

Machine communications behavior has unique characteristics differ from current human type communications (HTC) and legacy networks, which lead us to new challenges to modify the current technologies to be more suitable for the both HTC and M2M communications. M2M communications requirements characteristics are summarized below (Biral, 2015), (Alonso-Zarate, 2017), (El-Basioni, 2017), and (El-Basioni, 2011).
