The present document is intended to capture the output of the Study Item on RAN Improvements for Machine-type Communications.
The study aims to study the traffic characteristics of different M2M applications with machine-type communications and define new traffic models based on these findings. RAN enhancements for UTRA and EUTRA to improve the support of machine-type communications based on the SA1 requirements should be studied.
The RAN improvements should enable or improve the usage of RAN resources efficiently, and/or reduce the complexity when a large number of machine-type communications devices possibly need to be served based on the existing features as much as possible. Meanwhile, minimize the changes of existing specifications and the impaction of Human-to-Human terminals in order to keep the complexity related to M2M optimizations at a minimum level.
