Recent studies foresee that there would be roughly 50 billion of machine type communication (MTC) devices by 2020. Coping with the massive signaling overhead expected from these devices in 5G network is an important hurdle to tackle. In this paper, we have proposed two optimal solutions that use Device-To-Device (D2D) communications to lightweight the overhead of MTC devices on 5G network. Each scheme has a specific objective, and aims to manage the communications between devices and eNodeBs to achieve its objective. The proposed solutions nominate the devices that should communicate through D2D communication fashion and those that should directly communicate with eNodeBs. The first solution aims to reduce the energy consumption, whereas the second one aims to reduce the data transfer delay at the eNodeBs. The performance of the proposed schemes is evaluated via simulations and the obtained results demonstrate their feasibility and ability in achieving their design goals.
