Energy Efficient Multi Hop Clustering Protocol for Wireless Networks
Bluetooth and wireless LAN communication models are used in mobile devices. Mobile devices are equipped with multi radio features for WLAN and Bluetooth communications. IEEE 802.11 standards are used for WLAN communication. Bluetooth supports bandwidth level of 2Mbps with a range of 10 meters. Wireless LAN communication requires high energy resources. Wireless LAN communication model is integrated with Bluetooth communication mechanism. Bluetooth Personal Area Network (PAN) is formed with one cluster head and a set of nodes.
