Increasing Energy Efficiency in Mobile Peer Networks by Exploiting Traffic Sampling Techniques

Wireless infrastructures have seen a drastic increase in energy requirements as technology has shifted towards higher allocated frequencies in an attempt to provide more bandwidth to accommodate more users and provide the resources for more demanding applications and services, such as video streaming and multimedia applications. Driven by the increase in demand from an always increasing subscriber base, large cities are also forcing wireless service operators to install more base stations and access points to sustain an adequate quality of service. Mobile peer networking offers a possible solution for the later with the added benefit of providing power-efficient communication, since transmission over short distances demands less transmission power using appropriate peer connectivity algorithms.
