A Phase-Type Based Markov Chain Model for IEEE 802.16e Sleep Mode and Its Performance Analysis
Source: Tsinghua University
To support battery powered mobile broadband wireless access devices efficiently, IEEE 802.16e defines a sleep mode operation for conserving the power of mobile terminals. In this paper, the authors propose a theoretical PHase-type (PH) based Markov chain model to analyze the performance of IEEE 802.16e sleep mode operation. The model describes the behavior of the mobile stations working in sleep mode. In particular, the service process is designed as a discrete PH model. By means of the mathematic tools of PH theory they then derive the closed-form expressions of the mean sojourn time of packets and power consumption. Comparison with simulation results shows that the model provides an accurate prediction of the system performance.
