The sleep mode which works upon low arrival traffic is introduced in IEEE802.16e standard to reduce the power consumption
of the mobile access terminal. Due to the rapid growth in the sleep interval in the exponential growth algorithm prescribed
in IEEE802.16e, the power saving efficiency of the mobile access terminal is limited and the average delay time of receiving
data frames is prolonged when the arrival rate of data frames is low. To obtain lower power consumption and shorter average
delay time, the logarithmic growth algorithm is proposed. Theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the proposed
algorithm has lower average power consumption and shorter average delay time than the exponential growth algorithm, and it
can meet the requirements of low traffic and real-time applications.

    ABSTRACT: Cellular digital packet data (CDPD) provides a sleep-mode operation for power conservation in mobile end systems (M-ESs). We perform a theoretical analysis of sleep-mode operation for CDPD. Sleep-mode operation is modeled as an M<sup>X</sup>/G/1/L queueing system with an attention span and multiple vacations with an exceptional first vacation. The steady-state probabilities of the queueing system, the frame loss probability, the expected frame waiting time, and the percentage of time in the sleep period are derived. Sleep-mode performance is evaluated for varying packet arrival rate, buffer length, and timers' values using the queueing model. Sleep mode in an M-ES occurs when the packet arrival rate for the M-ES is low. When the M-ES is in sleep mode, the expected frame waiting time depends on the T204 value. To keep the frame loss probability low for M-ES in sleep mode, the mobile data intermediate system buffer should be sufficiently large. Sleep mode can efficiently reduce power consumption by selecting a low value for timer T203 and a high value for timer T204.

    ABSTRACT: While the legacy power-saving mechanism in wireless networks usually uses a predetermined and fixed sleep interval to enhance the energy conservation of mobile stations, the IEEE 802.16e Mobile WiMAX system adopts a power-saving mechanism with a binary truncated exponent (BTE) algorithm for determining sleep intervals. Although the BTE algorithm allows more flexibility in determining sleep intervals, it still does not consider the delay of the response packet. Thus, in this paper, we suggest a new power-saving mechanism, which is the probabilistic sleep interval decision (PSID) algorithm, in the context of an IEEE 802.16e Mobile WiMAX system. While the length of sleep interval is restricted by the upper and lower bounds, irrespective of response packet's arrival time under the BTE algorithm, the PSID algorithm determines sleep interval placement by using the distribution function of the response packet's arrival time so that the response packet may arrive at the base station during each sleep interval with the same probability. To compare the two algorithms, the main properties of the BTE algorithm and the proposed PSID algorithm are discussed, and a theoretical framework for analyzing its performance is provided. Analytical and simulation results show that under the BTE algorithm, energy consumption and buffering delay converge to a saturation point, and a short buffering delay can be obtained at the expense of sacrificing energy consumption. Meanwhile, the PSID algorithm performs better with respect to energy consumption and buffering delay than the BTE algorithm.
