Novel Relay Selection Algorithms for Machine-to-Machine Communications with Static RF Interface Usage

08/25/2019 ∙ by Monireh Allah Gholi Ghasri, et al. ∙ 0

Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications have been introduced to improve the communication capacity in dense wireless networks. One of the most important concerns for network designers is maintaining the high performance of the network when the quality of connections between sources and their destinations is poor. Thus the careful selection of relays between data sources and their destinations is a very important issue. The possibility of simultaneous use of different Radio Frequency (RF) interfaces for transmitting data, which communication devices are equipped with them, can increase the capacity of data transmission over the network. In this paper, two novel M2M relay selection algorithms are proposed, named as Optimal Relay Selection Algorithm (ORSA) and Matching based Relay Selection Algorithm (MRSA). ORSA is a centralized algorithm for the optimal selection of relays by transforming the main problem to a k-cardinality assignment problem that can be solved using the Hungarian algorithm. MRSA is a distributed algorithm that leverages concepts from matching theory to provide a stable solution for the relay selection problem. In both proposed algorithms static RF interfaces usage is applied to enable simultaneous use of different interfaces for data transmission. The simulations show that ORSA is optimally solving the relay selection problem. MRSA has an optimal stable result, that when there is no restriction on the number of channels, is only about 1 results than direct transmission Without any Relay Selection Algorithm (WRSA) and Random Relay Selection Algorithm (RRSA), about 15
