Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications consist of a large number of smart devices that communicate automatically without human intervention. The Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), due to some features such as IP connectivity and scalability, are ready-to-use infrastructures for the M2M communications implementation. In the next generation of cellular networks with M2M devices, radio resource allocation is a major issue. In order to solve the issue, this paper addresses the efficient resource block (RB) allocation problem for different relay-aided cellular and M2M user equipments (UEs) to maximize the end-to-end data rate under different constraints of Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA). The proposed solution also satisfies the maximum power budget, the minimum data rate and statistical QoS delay requirements for prioritizing different traffics under total power constraint. Numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
