A Novel Device and Application-Aware Energy Efficient Routing Algorithm for WLANs
The latest mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet PCs, equipped with high resolution interactive screens, highly advanced CPUs, wireless networking and multimedia processing capabilities have become very important in people's daily life. The growth of these devices' popularity has determined an increased interest from shopping malls, theme parks, institutions, convention centre, etc. to deploy wireless network infrastructure and offer diverse online services addressed to such device users. However infrastructure deployment is expensive and highly localized, so accessing content from mobile devices supported by ad-hoc wireless connectivity is considered a very good alternative solution.
