Abstract This chapter describes key challenges that must be faced to turn long-term evolution (LTE) into a suitable technology for machine-to-machine (M2M) and machine-type communications (MTC). In particular, the challenges dealt with in this chapter relate to managing a large number of devices, attaining very low energy consumption, ensuring low-complexity protocols to bring down the cost of devices, and extending coverage to facilitate one-hop transmissions. Beyond being technically feasible, network operators must adopt network optimization; therefore, a techno-economic perspective is presented in this chapter as well. Business-related requirements and implications that emerge from the traffic mix between humans and machines are covered, including scalability and deployment cost issues, as well as migration options from current solutions.
