Abstract

Emerging device centric communication technologies such as device to device (D2D) communication, devices to device (Ds2D) communication and multi-homing (MH) D2D have been considered as essential part of future 5G networks as well as internet of things (IoT). The device centric communication offers enhanced cellular data rates, high spectral efficiency, reduced latency, improved fairness, better energy efficiency and extended coverage; however, the battery life of end devices is crucial to fully reap benefits of this technology. In this article we propose a new method for device centric communication in IoT system, where multiple source IoT devices can send data to multiple destination IoT devices using multiple interfaces. This method is called devices to devices (Ds2Ds) communication. A tree search algorithm is proposed to select the optimal source IoT devices, destination IoT devices and radio interfaces. The results of proposed Ds2Ds communication are benchmarked against Ds2D and MH-D2D. Extensive simulation has been carried out to compare energy efficiency per source device. The simulation results show the superiority of Ds2Ds over Ds2D in terms of energy efficiency, which, in turn implies better throughput. Ds2DS is superior to MH-D2D in terms of energy consumption per source device, a very good and promising requirement for green communication.
