Gavin W. O'Brien, Nate V. Lesser, Brett Pleasant, Sue Wang, Kangmin Zheng, Colin Bowers, Kyle Kamke
Health care providers increasingly use mobile devices to receive, store, process, and transmit patient clinical information. According to our own risk analysis, discussed here, and in the experience of many health care providers, mobile devices can present

A 3D Topology Optimization Scheme for M2M Communications

June 29, 2018
Yalong Wu, Wei Yu, Jin Zhang, David W. Griffith, Nada T. Golmie
Without efficient topology management, M2M communications will likely asymmetrically congest gateways and eNodeBs in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) networks, especially when M2M

A Dynamic Rate Adaptation Scheme for M2M Communications

May 24, 2018
Yalong Wu, Wei Yu, David W. Griffith, Nada T. Golmie
The number of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) devices has continued to grow at an accelerated rate. Without thoughtful and efficient resource management, M2M communications will be asymmetrically handicapped by service rate scarcity as more devices are
