Sub 1GHz M2M Communications Standardization: The Advancement in White Space Utilization for Enhancing the Energy Efficiency
Sylvester Ajah, Ali Al-Sherbaz, Scott Turner and Phil Picton

 Energy efficiency of machine to machine (M2M) communications terminals is one of the major design goals of M2M networks, resulting from anticipated over 50 billion  M2M communications devices to be deployed into the networks by 2020. The stakeholders in the M2M communications have observed that it will be environmental and economic catastrophic to deploy M2M communications devices without solving the energy inefficiencies associated with wireless devices that are expected to be used for M2M communications. In view of the aforementioned energy challenge, sub 1GHz spectra have provided enormous opportunities that can be energy efficient, cost effective and coverage efficiency which can be utilized for M2M communications. This work will evaluate the energy efficiency benefits of optimized Sub 1GHz spectra for M2M communications.
