Qos-aware resource allocation for machine type communications
MetadataShow full item record
Machine Type Communication (MTC) is a rapidly growing trend of mobile communications with a lot of applications in areas such as smart home technologies, sensor networks in factories, e-health, safety and protection and education. The integration of this trend in the existing network structure raises a number of concerns among which is Quality of Service (QoS) degradation since some of those applications are delay critical and others are resource hungry. In this project we propose a resource allocation scheme based on clustering with priority algorithm that will ensure that the available resources are allocated well putting into consideration the diverse QoS requirements for MTC devices. For this algorithm, the Machine Type Communication Devices (MTCDs) will be grouped/clustered according to delay, and error tolerance and priority will be assigned depending on the characteristics of the traffic from a particular MTC group. This project aims at reducing packet loss, delay and jitter in the network better than some of the proposed techniques and algorithms by some of the researchers.
