ABSTRACT The emerging IEEE 802.16m standard provides a new sleep mode operation for Mobile Stations (MSs). It evolves from the sleep mode operation in the IEEE 802.16 standard but with more advanced features, e.g., the listening window may be extended and the sleep cycle length is adjustable. To fully exploit these advancements, we conduct a comprehensive analytical study on the power consumption and average packet delay under the new sleep mode operation. Then, based on the analytical results, we propose a novel adaptive sleep mode management scheme called Adaptive Sleep Mode Management (ASMM), which adjusts an MS's sleep cycle and listening window in an adaptive manner based on online monitoring and estimation of the traffic condition. The goal is to minimize the power con- sumption by the MS while limiting the average packet delay under a user-specified level. The effectiveness of ASMM is demonstrated via simulation-based performance evaluation. 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: IEEE 802.16m sleep mode employs a timer in order to determine state transition conditions depending on traffic arrivals destined for a Mobile Station (MS). However, accurate analytical model is not provided yet. We reinvestigate the timer operation and provide an accurate model for further studies.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we analyze the power saving and its impact on web traffic performance when customers adopt the continuous connectivity paradigm. To this end, we provide a model for packet transmission and cost. We model each mobile user's traffic with a realistic web traffic profile, and study the aggregate behavior of the users attached to a base station by means of a processor-shared queueing system. In particular, we evaluate user access delay, download time and expected economy of energy in the cell. Our study shows that dramatic energy saving can be achieved by mobile devices and base stations, e.g., as much as 70%–90% of the energy cost in cells with realistic traffic load and the considered parameter settings.
