Abstract

We have experienced an explosive increase of the IoT(Internet of Things) technology based devices including smart phones and the wireless communications. Also the growing power consumption in IEEE 802.11 WLANs(Wireless LANs) driven by these dramatic increases in not only mobile users and but also wireless APs(Access Points). To reduce the power consumption, this paper proposes a wireless AP power saving algorithm, which minimizes the transmission power without decrease the transmission and carrier sense ranges. A wireless AP which is use in our algorithm checks its own original coverage periodically for whether there is a new STA(Station) or not when its transmission power is decreased. Moreover, if there are no signaling message to connect the wireless AP, it changes its operation mode Wake-up to sleep. A Result shows that the proposed AP algorithm can reduce the total power consumption of the wireless AP approximated 18% and 35% compared to the conventional wireless AP with and without the existing power saving algorithm, respectively.
