Abstract / truncated to 115 words (read the full abstract)

This thesis aims at contributing to overcome two of the main challenges for the deployment of highly dense wireless M2M networks in data collection scenarios for the Internet of Things: the management of massive numbers of end-devices that attempt to get access to the wireless channel; and the need to extend the network lifetime to reduce maintenance costs. In order to solve these challenges, two complementary strategies are considered. Firstly, the thesis focuses on the design, analysis and performance evaluation of random and hybrid access protocols that can handle abrupt transitions in the traffic load and minimize the energy consumption devoted to communications. And secondly, the use of energy harvesting (EH) is considered in order ... toggle 5 keywords
