The next generation of mobile systems must provide a balancing strategy towards M2M (Machine-to-Machine) traffic, while maintaining a sustainable Quality of Service (QoS) for H2H (Human-to-Human) traffic, especially with the expected exponential growth of the number of M2M devices in the coming years carried by the advance of the IoT (Internet of Things) technology. In normal situations, it is obvious that using a 1.4 MHz bandwidth in Long Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M), helps in improving

However, in emergency scenarios, an expected M2M storm will lead inevitably to a fast resource depletion accompanied by an eNodeB congestion in a split second. In this manuscript, we propose a novel scheme "LTE-M Adaptive eNodeB", which gradually solves the eNodeB overload problem, while keeping the H2H traffic QoS not to be affected badly. Moreover, We adaptively manage network resources to allow both traffic to efficiently access the LTE network via SimuLTE opensource modeler. Eventually, an evaluation of the mutual impact of M2M and H2H coexistence is also presented.
