Energy conservation has become a critical issue around the world. In smart phones, battery power capabilities are not keeping up with the advances in other technologies (e.g., processing and memory) and are rapidly becoming a concern, especially in view of the growth in usage of energy-hungry mobile multimedia streaming. The deficiency in battery power and the need for reduced energy consumption provides motivation for researchers to develop energy efficient techniques in order to manage the power consumption in next-generation wireless networks.
