Abstract [en]

In cellular and cellular-IoT systems, random access has the utmost importance as it is the gatekeeper that assures conflict-free access to radio resources. The main drawback of the legacy protocols lies at the collision resolution procedure as the base station (BS) is blind to the collision multiplicity and collided devices rely on the BSs for contention resolution. While contention resolution over the random access channel (RACH) is mature in the literature, most studies are following optimistic assumptions in which the full collision impact at the receiver is neglected, and a simplified model of partially overlapping packets is considered. This work is devoted to the investigation of a more realistic model of collision in cellular networks with the aim to investigate challenges and potential solutions in preamble detection in collision scenarios. The simulation results show that besides previously well-known challenges in dealing with collisions, the occurrence of collisions significantly increases the probability of false preamble detection.

Abstract [en]

3GPP introduced Early Data Transmit (EDT) protocol in release-15 to address Internet of things (IoT) services signaling cost and connection delay due to RRC connectivity procedure. EDT enables data transmission in MSG3 wherein traditional RACH procedure, a collision is realized at MSG3 reception. Traditional preventive approach (access class barring) may control the device access rate, but that does not always adequate to solve hidden collision due to the receiver’s limitation and devices power control mechanism. The present work aims at solving the problem by allocating extra resources pool for potential collided devices. The allocated resource of the pool is optimized based on an artificial neural network (ANN) based learning algorithm. The performance evaluation result shows that the learning-based resource allocation radically increases the data transmission success rate with EDT.

Abstract [en]

— Pilot rollouts of Cellular-IoT (C-IoT) networks just started to take place this year. In the coming years, commercial deployment will take place. However, among the plethora of low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies, the cost-effectiveness of C-IoT is not certain for IoT service providers, small and greenfield operators.  Today, there is no known public framework for the feasibility analysis of IoT communication technologies.

Hence, this paper first presents a generic framework to assess the viability of cellular and non-cellular LPWAN technologies. Then, we applied the framework in eight deployment scenarios to analyze the prospect of LPWAN technologies like Sigfox, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, LTE-M, and EC-GSM. We consider the inter-technology interference impact on LoRaWAN and Sigfox scalability. Our results validate that large rollout with a single technology is not cost-efficient. Also, our analysis suggests the viability of an IoT communication Technology may not be linear to cost efficiency.

Abstract [en]

This techno-economic study introduces a framework to study the deployment cost of IoT radio access network and to compare the cost and capacity of LPWAN, LPLAN, and Cellular-IoT systems. There are a plethora of Communication technologies available today. Small rollout and pilot projects are visible for most of the IoT connectivity technologies. However, The economic viability of cellular and non-cellular IoT connectivity technologies are not definite. The primary objective of this work is to analyze the cost structure of SigFox, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, and WiFi-HaLow. In this paper, we study an urban scenario with the consideration of an Greenfield and Brownfield actor to understand the technology selection strategy of communication service prodvider's perspective. One of our findings indicates that the maintenance cost is the key cost driver for IoT radio access networks. We also point out certain bounds where a technology is potentially cost-effective.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we look into the business and service platform settings for a number of sharing services interpreted in a broad sense. It includes offering and renting of unused resources, bike and car pools, car rental, co-working spaces, second hand, and recycling. The objective of the study is to identify and describe requirements and features for an open two sided service platform for sharing services. The data set includes more than 30 sharing economy services and initiatives in Sweden. Primary data is collected from around 20 persons representing cities, local communities, providers of sharing services, technology providers and start-ups. We have also interviewed a few users of sharing services, car pools, bike pools, and coworking spaces in order to get some insight about user experience.. The sharing service should typically consider temporary use of idle capacity, usage of a platform enabling sharing and transaction between any persons in an open setting. We consider sharing of both goods and services. The main findings and research contributions are: i) a more clear definition of sharing services using the model with closed/open sets of both users and resources (providers), ii) identification of key values of a sharing service platform (as compared to values of a product or a rental service), and iii) a list of key features to implement in sharing service platforms.

Abstract [en]

Internet of Things (IoT) is anticipated as a 'game changer' for communication service providers. Numerous IoT devices will deploy in areas where humans already inhabit. It is increasing the importance of indoor area coverage to support IoT services. This again brings the historically important questions, 'what roles an actor play and who will control the indoor coverage?' In this paper, we discuss the business actors' roles in IoT indoor service context. We identify the possible roles and activities needed to provide end-to-end indoor IoT services. Additionally, we analyze the actors' roles in IoT ecosystem. We compare the actors' roles in the context of the suitable technology and deployment choices. Our identification of roles and initial analysis shows the impact of technology and rollout choices over network business strategy. With our presented analysis, we evaluate the possible paths for mobile network operators (MNOs) on low-power wide area (LPWAN) or low-power wireless local area (LPWLAN) network deployment.

Abstract [en]

M2M sector is an increasingly important source of connections growth for mobile operatorsworldwide. Operators are looking at M2M as a new business alternative means to reduce the impact of theslowing growth (or declines) in traditional consumer mobile services. As a result, many operators areadapting their organisational structures and business models exploring opportunities to expand theirportfolio to emerging markets in developing countries. These markets are still in process of maturing,with M2M implementations at very early stage. On the other hand, the benefits that could accrue todeveloped countries through the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine type communication (MTC) arenumerous. In this context, this paper presents an initial study about the current status of M2M in somedeveloping countries, considering as study cases regions such as Latin America and Asia. Presentedinformation remarks the potential of the considered markets to boost the growth of M2M solutionsworldwide. Finally, we show some specific requirements for M2M business models for developingcountries and a description of the technical challenges to be considered at the moment of investing inM2M solutions for developing countries.

Abstract [en]

A plethora of Internet of Things (IoT) platforms are available in the market today. Most of the IoT platforms are used mainly for service prototyping. Cost-efficient service scalability on any platform is still an unresolved concern that, so far, has been addressed qualitatively. A quantitative method for IoT platform economics is missing in the literature. In this paper, we propose a generic framework to address this gap. Our proposed framework covers the dimensioning of the platform's software and hardware to envisage the design, deployment, and operation cost of platform services. Then, we use the framework to perform a quantitative study of platform rollout in three platform business contexts. Our analysis shows the applicability of different deployment and platform integration choices. Our results suggest that storage and energy are the main cost drivers for platforms' hardware scalability, where the main cost driver is the intensity of the sensors' message transmission rate. Additionally, our use-case based study suggests that platform as a service (PaaS) is only beneficial for actors who have limited scale or niche market need.
