Leveraging the Tail Time for Saving Energy in Cellular Networks
|Name||Leveraging the Tail Time for Saving Energy in Cellular Networks|
Here we provide TailTheft, a scheme that leverages the tail time for batching and prefetching to reduce energy consumption. For network requests from a number of applications that can be deferred or prefetched, TailTheft provides a customized application programming interface to distinguish requests and then schedules delay-tolerant and prefetchable requests in the tail time to save energy. TailTheft employs a virtual tail time mechanism to determine the amount of tail time that can be used and a dual queue scheduling algorithm to schedule transmissions. We implement TailTheft in the Network Simulator with a model for calculating energy consumption that is based on parameters measured from mobile phones.
