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: a b s t r a c t In this paper we investigate efficient mechanisms to support layered-video multicast ser-vices in IEEE 802.16e (Mobile WiMAX) networks. 1 Given the bandwidth eager and energy hungry nature of layered-video multicast services, network systems should employ efficient bandwidth allocation and energy saving mechanisms. We first investigate how the WiMAX energy saving mechanisms significantly degrade the performance of multicast bandwidth allocation mechanisms for layered-video multicast services. Then, we present a theoretical model for illustrating this interaction problem. To the best of our knowledge, this paper offers the first investigation into and the first theoretical model of the interaction problem between multicast bandwidth allocation and WiMAX energy saving mechanisms. To solve the interac-tion problem, we propose a novel sleep-mode interleaving algorithm beyond the existing mechanisms. The proposed algorithm has full compatibility with the existing multicast band-width allocation mechanisms and with IEEE 802.16e standards. By appropriately adjusting one sleep mode parameter defined in the standard, the proposed sleep-mode interleaving algorithm effectively guarantees the bandwidth efficiency of the video multicast mechanisms while mobile users can execute the standard sleep mode operations. Simulation results dem-onstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in terms of packet delivery ratio, user satisfaction, energy efficiency and computational complexity. Ó 2012 Elsevier B.V.

    ABSTRACT: We analyze the power-saving operation in Third-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE Advanced) wireless networks. Typically, it is an exhausting and complicated job to numerically analyze the performance of power-saving operations since it is necessary to carefully consider every possible probability, make probability-generating functions, and differentiate these functions. Instead, we develop a totally new approach toward simple but accurate derivations. For this purpose, we divide the time period for the steady-state power-saving operation into several independent parts. Then, we analyze the power-saving operation in each part and thereafter combine the results into an aggregate result. The new approach enables us to avoid sophisticated steps while we reach an accurate analytical model. The equations are validated through comparison with simulation results.
