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: Power saving mechanisms with sleep-mode operations have been used in IEEE 802.16e in order to extend the battery lifetime of mobile devices. The standard sleep-mode operation needs to meet a given delay constraint. However, it may incur unnecessary energy consumption due to frequent state transitions. In this paper, we propose a new energy-efficient sleep-mode operation while meeting a given delay requirement. We apply an M/G/1 queue model with multiple vacations for downlink traffic in an error-free environment in order to evaluate the energy efficiency performance of the proposed sleep-mode operation in terms of packets/Joule. We compare the proposed sleep-mode operation with the standard sleep-mode operation. The results show that our proposed sleep-mode operation improves the total energy efficiency consumption per unit frame time by 35% and energy efficiency by 21% while meeting a given delay requirement.

    ABSTRACT: The IEEE 802.16 system provides the power saving class (PSC) type II as a power saving algorithm for voice over internet protocol (VoIP) service, but it is not designed to consider silent periods of VoIP traffic. The main objective of this paper is to introduce a power conservation mechanism that combines power saving modes class I, class II and class III which is applicable to VoIP service with silence suppression which basically follows PSC II during talk-spurt periods but in silence periods it combine PSC I and PSC III. According to experimental results, more than 96 % power reduction can be achieved in mutual silence period by using the proposed VoIP power saving mechanism for VoIP services during silent periods with respect to the Quality of Services.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze the power saving operation called Discontinuous Reception (DRX) with a novel bursty packet arrival model in 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE)-Advanced networks. Typical analytical studies on the power saving operations in wireless networks have been carried out under the assumption that an expectation of exponentially distributed packet arrival intervals stays unchanged. However, practical packet arrival rate may change depending on time or typical Internet services may incur bursty packet arrivals. In either case, we need to evaluate the performance of the DRX operation. For this purpose, we develop a more realistic traffic arrival model considering packets may arrive in a bursty manner under the DRX operation. We, then, analyze the performance of the DRX operation in terms of power saving efficiency and average queuing delay, respectively. The analytical results are validated via comparisons with simulation results.
