N2 - There are different techniques used by Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications technologies to mitigate collision problem and data loss. One of these techniques is Frequency Hopping (FH), which is used by Weightless-N technology with a special random channel selection algorithm. In such a system, the probability of a message collision mainly depends on the randomisation algorithm used to access channels. This paper provides a novel randomisation algorithm for the channel selection process of the Weightless-N system. The new proposed algorithm is based on a uniform randomisation distribution and called a Uniform Randomisation Channel Selection Technique (URCST). This new algorithm provides a better system performance and lower probability of collision. In addition, it is faster and easier than the Mersenne Twister algorithm.
