Power Saving Scheme Based on Joint Control of Buffer-Threshold and Timer in Binary Exponential Sleep Mode
The authors propose a new power saving scheme based on a buffer-threshold and timer in wireless packet networks. In a standard sleep mode operation with a binary exponential algorithm, a Mobile Station (MS) can begin a wake period if it is aware of the existence of its own downlink packets during a listening interval. In a light traffic environment, this conventional standard operation consumes a considerable amount of power to switch modes (sleep/listen/wake). To solve this problem, in this paper, a new power saving scheme based on Joint Control of Buffer-threshold and Timer (JCBT) is proposed.
