Machine to machine (M2M) communication ensures that LPWAN sensors can reliably transmit data 24/7. LPWAN technologies using the MXProtocol can exchange MXC payments and data without human interaction; providing the opportunity to automate standard processes. M2M communication is a critical element in the design of the Anti-Collision Coordinator, and the Smart Bidding ability included in the MXProtocol (Machine eXchange Protocol).
As the use of LPWAN grows, so will the risk of data collision. MXC is approaching this proactively by including the Anti-Collision Coordinator with the MXProtocol. Radio frequencies function much like train tracks. Only one train can travel over the same track at the same time. If two trains attempt to use the same track, they collide, causing a loss of data. The Anti-Collision coordinator ensures that data using the same frequency (or track) isn’t sent at the same time; thereby reducing collision and increasing the reliability of the LPWAN network as a whole.
Sensors used in mobile devices (bikes, cars or other resources) may, at some point, leave the radius covered the owner’s gateway. In this case, that device is lost and cannot be recovered. Machine-to-machine communication enables the device to communicate with another LPWAN gateway to send its data.
