"Energy efficiency, latency and reliability trade-offs in M2M uplink scheduling";
Issues of energy efficiency, latency and reliability have engaged researchers´ attention in wireless communications for a long time due to their importance in the dependable delivery of data over wireless networks. The emergence of M2M communication and IoT has
intensified this attention because energy efficiency and latency are critical factors affecting their performance. In this paper, a scheduler is designed by utilising the probability density function of the signal-to-noise ratio of Rayleigh fading channels to define a threshold used for resource allocation. This threshold, combined with the mean SNR of an M2M device, determines whether or not an M2M device is eligible for scheduling, given its instantaneous channel conditions. The trade-off between energy efficiency, latency and packet drop of this proposed scheduling strategy is investigated. The performance of the proposed scheduler is compared to round robin, maximum throughput, and proportional fair schedulers. Compared to these standard scheduling strategies, the scheduler provides the advantage of
trading off latency for energy efficiency by tuning the threshold parameter.
