The M2M communication is referred to as the information exchange between devices through a base station, or between a device and a server in the core network through a base station that may be carried out without any human interaction. M2M communications is a very distinct capability that enables the implementation of the Internet of things. Some of the typical use cases that the M2M communication enables are secured access and surveillance, tracking and tracing, public safety, payment, healthcare, remote maintenance and control, metering, consumer devices, and retailing
