Type II Sleep Mode Operation for IEEE 802.16e Based WiMAX
To overcome the flaw of energy efficiency drop in broad band wireless communication with the short time sleep, the energy-saving mechanism of the sleep mode operation was researched in IEEE 802.16e. In this paper we propose a dynamic algorithm to tune the ratio of the sleep windows and receive windows according to the traffic load. Then, a Markov chain model was set up to analyze the energy efficiency and mean access delay. NS2 simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve marked gain in energy efficiency compared to the traditional energy saving mechanism.
