1. An apparatus of an evolved node B (eNB) for machine-type communications (MTC) comprising:receive circuitry configured to receive one or more transmissions of block data on a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) from a first user equipment (UE) during a retransmission window;
control circuitry configured to:
determine that the block data has been successfully decoded at the eNB using the one or more transmissions of the block data; and
generate an early termination of repeated transmissions message for the data block following determination of successful decoding, the early termination of repeated transmissions message comprising a downlink control information (DCI) message; and
transmit circuitry configured to transmit the early termination of repeated transmissions message during the retransmission window.
