In this presentation, I will discuss the role of Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies to enable applications that involve in interacting with a massive number of devices and as well as various devices supporting mission critical tasks. These applications impose a large range of requirements in M2M communications architecture and protocols. I will cover a) suitable architectures, b) enabling technologies, c) protocols, and d) various standards activities that can drive M2M/IoT to the next level to enable massive number of connected devices and support mission communications in the future.
