Abstract

Reducing the energy consumption in wireless networks has attracted increasing attention in the last few years. Several research teams around the world are now proposing various solutions for the so-called green wireless networks, i.e. energy-efficient wireless networks. Although the increase of this research activity is rather recent, a large number of research papers and collaborative projects on this topic already exist nowadays. However, evaluating the energy-saving techniques and algorithms remains challenging due to the difficult in accessing licensed frequency and expensive equipments. In this demonstration, we propose a WiFi-based approach for testing energy saving algorithms for WLAN and cellular networks in real radio environment. We show that this platform can be used for testing or rapid prototyping of energy-efficient cellular networks.
