Wireless Wide-Area Networks for Internet of Things: An Air Interface Protocol for IoT and a Simultaneous Access Channel for Uplink IoT Communication

An Internet of Things (IoT) wide-area communication system concept is proposed in this article, as deployed within the operator's licensed macrocellular band. It is suitable for low-energy, low complexity IoT modules with infrequent and low-priority IoT traffic. Also proposed here is a simultaneous access channel for uplink (UL) IoT commuication and a simplified air interface protocol for IoT. The proposed system concept can be considered either as an an overlay to the existing cellular systems or an enhancement.
