Abstract

Massive machine-type communications (mMTC) is a major use case in the fifth generation (5G) wireless networks. mMTC aims at supporting a large number of Internet of Things (IoT) connections within a coverage area. The current random access procedure in the Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks may not be able to handle a large number of simultaneous connection requests due to the limited number of random access preambles. Hence, it is essential to modify the random access procedure to support mMTC. In this paper, we propose a new preamble sequence design in which two Zadoff-Chu preamble sequences are aggregated together. This design enables us to have a larger set of random access preambles consisting of all combinations of pairing two Zadoff-Chu preamble sequences. Moreover, we consider a subset of all combinations that satisfy a certain maximum peak-to-average-power-ratio (PAPR) threshold criterion to reduce the energy consumption of the IoT devices. The proposed design requires only minor changes in the conventional transmitter and receiver design for generating and decoding the aggregated preamble sequences, respectively. Results show that the proposed design reduces the probability of preamble collision to less than 10-{-4}, which is lower than LTE. Furthermore, it outperforms other collision avoidance techniques such as access class barring (ACB) in terms of a lower average total service time. The modified receiver detects the aggregated preambles successfully and avoids detecting false preambles. Both the probabilities of misdetection and false alarm are less than 10-{-3} when the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is larger than-7 dB.
