Abstract:This paper describes the design of an energy-efficient transport protocol for mobile wireless communication. First we describe the metrics used to measure the energy efficiency of transport protocols.
We identify several problem areas that prevent TCP/IP from reaching high levels of energy efficiency. In the design of Energy Efficient TCP (E2TCP) we provide solutions for these problems, and concentrate on the wireless link only. A simulation model of this proposed energy-efficient transport protocol has been implemented. The simulation results show that E2TCP not only has higher energy efficiency than TCP/IP, but it also manages to outperform TCP/IP on more traditional performance metrics: throughput and latency.
