Green wireless: towards minimum per-bit linear energy consumption in wireless communications
MetadataShow full item record
Low-energy communications is becoming an increasingly relevant research area, due to both economic and environmental reasons. Low-energy is particularly relevant in wireless because of the limited energy available to terminals and the high consumption of the base stations derived from wide geographical coverage. Green wireless aims to formulate a long term research goal in the wireless environment. In the talk, the speaker will present the motivation and formulation of this research goal, with an overview of the associated research challenges. The talk will also address in more detail one specific case of energy-efficiency consisting in the cross-factor, which consists of the energy penalty derived from a packet traversing the system protocol stack.
