Kneza trial region in Slovenia including electricity and communication network infrastructures, LTE
coverage, and end-users.
Unfortunately, the pro-
posed scheme for guar-
anteed reliability random
access cannot be easily
implemented in today’s
cellular networks, since
it requires changes to
the LTE protocol in both
devices and eNodeB.
The scheme may,
however, inspire the
development of Machine
Type Communication
protocols for the upcom-
ing 5G standards.
