Abstract

GSM is a synonym for a major success in wireless
technology, achieving widespread use and high technology maturity. However, its future is questionable, as many stakeholders
indicate that the GSM spectrum should be re-farmed for LTE. On
the other hand, the advent of smart grid and the ubiquity of smart
meters will require reliable, long-lived wide area connections.
This motivates to investigate the potential of GSM to be evolved
into a dedicated network for smart metering. We introduce simple
mechanisms to reengineer the access control in GSM. The result
is a system that offers excellent support for smart metering, as
well as the other massive machine-to-machine traffic patterns
that are envisioned in 3GPP.
