A Quality of Service Aware Protocol for Power Conservation in Wireless Ad Hoc and Mobile Networks

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Description:

Power consumption is an important issue for mobile computers since they rely on the short life of batteries. Conservation techniques are commonly used in hardware design of such systems but network interface is a significant consumer of power, which needs considerable research to be devoted towards designing a low-power design network protocol stack. Due to the dynamic nature of wireless networks, adaptations are necessary to achieve energy efficiency and a reasonable quality of service. This paper presents the application of energy-efficient techniques to each layer in the network protocol stack and a feedback is provided depending on the performance of this new design. And also a comparison of two existing MAC protocols is done showing a better suitability of E2MAC for higher power conservation. Multimedia applications can achieve an optimal performance if they are aware of the characteristics of the wireless link. Relying on the underlying operating system software and communication protocols to hide the anomalies of wireless channel needs efficient energy consumption methodology and fair quality of service like E2MAC. This report also focuses on some of the various concerns of energy efficiency in wireless communication and also looks into the definition of seven layers as defined by International Standards Organization.
