Expanding LTE for Devices www.ict-exalted.eu European Commission Information Society and Media The aim of EXATED is to realise the vision of a new scalable network architecture supporting the challenging requirements of future wireless communication systems and providing secure energy-efficient, and cost-effective machine-to-machine (M2M) communications suitable for low end devices. Research Areas LTE-M: extending the scalability of the LTE architecture up to very cost sensitive mobile narrow band applications and supporting efficient M2M communication with wide area coverage Advanced mobile networking capabilities that will establish a comprehensive end-to-end (E2E) architecture for M2M systems as a stepping stone towards Future Internet of Things Low cost automated security and provisioning solutions for M2M over LTE Device improvement enabling enhanced autonomy in the scope of M2M services. Work Approach Identifying use cases, scenarios, technical requirements, and business models (WP2). Specification of LTE-M, extension to LTE for M2M devices. Backward compatible to LTE Rel.8 (WP3). E2E M2M system. Definition of packet data protocols between LTE-M and capillary networks, IP networking, device management, traffic aggregation and network monitoring (WP4). Definition of low cost automated authentication and device provisioning solutions for efficient and secure M2M communications over LTE network (WP5). Implementation techniques for power efficiency, reliability and secure M2M devices with self diagnostic feature while considering benefits of LTE-M access network (WP6). Integration and proof of concepts. Validation of the EXALTED concepts for the prioritized use cases and scenarios (WP7). Key Technologies PHY&MAC layer: Integration of wireless M2M communications into existing cellular communication systems Low complexity PHY and MAC algorithms to match low end M2M systems: traffic aggregation, adaptive MAC scheduling, etc. Interworking: 6LowPan packet footprint for LTE bearers Heterogeneous network access management Mobility protocols at network or transport levels Reduced mobility concept IP networking for M2M communications Device management and optimization: Self organising and healing operations Heterogeneous traffic support Energy efficient operations Security and provisioning: M2M applications in networked secure devices Security in relaying networks Expected Impacts Accelerate the development of M2M communications in combination with broadband wireless access systems, hence strengthening the position of the European industry as supplier for advanced communication infrastructure. Trigger enhanced M2M applications in health care, industrial processes, and remote monitoring, as well as enable new business opportunities Use the results to shape the development of standardisation of M2M communications in 3GPP, ETSI M2M, and other forums. Develop key technical features. This work has been performed in the framework of the ICT project ICT-5-258512 EXALTED, which is partly funded by the European Union. The organisations on the source list would like to acknowledge the contributions of their colleagues to the project. 13 Partners from 6 Countries
