Energy and Link Measurements for Mobile Phones Using IEEE802.11b/g
Source: Aalborg University
In this paper, the authors investigate the energy consumption and achievable data rates of commercially available mobiles phones using WLAN IEEE802.11bg for mobile peer to peer networking. In contrast to numerous data rate measurements for WLAN, not much attention was paid for the energy consumption using WLAN on mobile phones. The knowledge of the actual energy consumption is useful for any future protocol design. Therefore, they present a solid measurement campaign looking into the energy spent in sending, receiving, and idle mode for unicast and broadcast traffic.
