End–to–End Communication Challenges inM2MSystems for mHealth Applications

Abstract : In the new era of connectivity, marked by the explosive number of wireless electronic devices and the need for smart and pervasive applications, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications are an emerging technology that enables the seamless device interconnection without the need of human interaction. The use of M2M technology can bring to life a wide range of mHealth applications, with considerable benefits for both patients and healthcare providers. Many technological challenges have to be met, however, to ensure the widespread adoption of mHealth solutions in the future. In this paper, after describing the key elements of the M2M architecture, we discuss the main design challenges from a communication perspective and we present some relevant ongoing projects for mHealth applications.
