The energy consumed by communication networks can be reduced in several ways. For example, concentrating the workload of an infrastructure on a reduced set of devices, while switching off the others, is called resource consolidation. It is particularly suited to routing of data traffic when a network is lightly loaded, but the selection of the rout...

Positioning a device with the only help of an RF transmitter in an indoor environment is difficult because of the complexity and of the unpredictable nature of radio propagation in such a scenario. The effects of fading, multipath, shadowing make it difficult to infer distance between two points from a blind measurement of the signal attenuation. H...

The energy consumption of network devices, and, as a consequence, of communication networks, is generally independent from their level of utilization, which results in a waste of energy when the network is lightly loaded. Ideally the consumption of a network should be proportional to the amount of traffic it conveys. The most straightforward way to...
