Standards bodies are already developing standards for energy-efficient protocols. However, research in green communications is still at an early stage, and the space of potential solutions is far from being fully explored. This book provides a comprehensive discussion of academic research and relevant applications in green communications. It aims to increase understanding of relevant issues and further the development of strategies and techniques.
Gathering efforts from world-leading experts on green topics with different focuses, such as mobile communications, wireless networks, ad hoc and sensor networks, cloud computing, optical networking, smart grids, network devices, even FPGA and terminal devices, combined with the best practices from the largest telecommunication operator, China Mobile Corporation, this book covers key features such as:
Not only focuses on energy saving of ICT industry, but also figures out its role to help other industries reduce energy consumption Comprehensively covers almost all main aspects in green communications Includes recent advances in theoretical analysis, algorithms, and practical applications for green wired and wireless communications Readers do not have to be professionals in communications to understand the basic ideas in the book
This book brings green wired and wireless communications, as well as other general green topics, in one book, which will give readers a panoramic view in the relevant green fields.
The book presents cutting-edge algorithms, protocols, and network architectures to improve energy efficiency in communication networks. It illustrates the various aspects of modeling, analysis, design, management, deployment, and optimization of algorithms, protocols, and architectures of green communications and networking. The text examines energy-efficient hardware platforms, physical layer, networking, and applications. Containing helpful references in each chapter, it also:
Proposes a mechanism for minimizing energy consumption of wireless networks without compromising QoS Reviews recent development in utility communication networks, including advanced metering infrastructure and SCADA Studies energy-efficient rate adaptation in long-distance wireless mesh networks Considers the architectural design of energy-efficient wireline Internet nodes Presents graph-theoretic solutions that can be adopted in an IP network to reduce the number of links used in the network during off-peak periods Outlines a methodology for optimizing time averages in systems with variable length frames Details a demand-based resources trading model for green communications
The book introduces a new solution for delivering green last-mile access: broadband wireless access with fiber-connected massively distributed antennas (BWA-FMDA). It also presents a methodology for optimizing time averages in systems with variable length frames. Surveying a representative number of demand and response methods in smart grids, the text supplies you with the understanding of smart grid dynamics needed to participate in the development of next-generation wireless cellular networks.
Each technique is thoroughly described and illustrated before being surveyed in context of the LTE-Advanced standards.

GSM/EDGE: Evolution and Performance allows you to keep apace with all of the new developments that have occurred in 3GPP on the GSM standard since the introduction of EDGE:Covers all the key aspects of GSM/EDGE Evolution from Release 7 until Release 9 in a systematic manner. Features performance evaluations derived from leading-edge simulation tools and field trials. Addresses network optimization techniques and environmental aspects. Written by leading experts in the field of GSM/EDGE evolution and standardisation. Contributors from Nokia, NSN, Helsinki University of Technology and Instituto Nokia de Tecnologia.
This book presents state-of-the-art energy-efficient techniques, designs and implementations that pertain to wireless communication networks such as cellular networks, wireless local area networks (WLANs) and wireless ad hoc networks (WAHNs) including mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), and wireless sensor networks (WSNs) as they are deployed across the world to facilitate “always on” reliable high-speed wireless access from anywhere, at anytime to accommodate the new paradigm of the “Internet of Things” (IoT).
The pervasive and exponential growth of Wi-Fi and the impact of bandwidth-intensive applications on the energy consumption of Wi-Fi-enabled devices are discussed along with energy harvesting as an advantageous option to power WAHNs.
The book aims to serve as a useful reference for researchers, students, regulatory authorities, and educators.
