Due to the increasing of energy consumption in Information and Communication Technology (ICT), green computing has recently drawn a lot of attention. However, the application of green networking to Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) has seldom been reported in the literature. In this paper, the authors propose a new framework for energy management in TDMA-based WMNs to support energy efficient communications. Their proposed framework aims at finding an optimal tradeoff between the achieved network throughput and energy consumption. To do so, they use resource planning through green routing and link scheduling.
