Energy Efficient Opportunistic Uplink Packet Forwarding in Hybrid Wireless Networks
MetadataShow full item record
Opportunistic schedulers have been primarily proposed to enhance capacity of cellular networks. However, little is known about opportunistic scheduling with fairness and energy efficiency constraints. In this work, we show that adapting opportunistic scheduling can dramatically amelio- rate energy efficiency for uplink transmissions, while achiev- ing near-optimal throughput and high fairness. To achieve this goal, we propose a novel two-tier uplink forwarding scheme in which users cooperate, in particular by forming clusters of dual-radio mobiles in hybrid wireless networks.
