Different interference measurement methodologies for the Narrowband Internet of Things network are depicted and examined in this article. The Co-Channel Interference is a unit of the master exporter of interference, which happens mostly because of the frequency reuse concept. Co-Channel Interference has a stronger influence in Code Division Multiple Access based approaches since the frequency reuse ratio in those systems is identical. The impact of various interference measurement methodologies on Narrowband Internet of Things link adaptability and throughput performance is investigated. Different interference measuring approaches are described, and evaluated, their core process ideas, including technique overhead aspects, are reviewed, and an itemized performance assessment and comparison is made. In order to reduce the effects of interference signals and increase user throughput, Minimum Mean Square Error-Interference Rejection Combining receivers are deployed as a mobile station interference rejection and inhibition technology. The presented data show that one interference approach outperforms the others in terms of throughput.
