WP 1.3 Energy - and Bandwidth-Efficient Communications and Networking

Efficiency in all of its facets is one of the keywords to make the Internet of the Future meet the challenges of the personal needs’ satisfaction, as outlined in Section B.1.1. This WP will address all theoretical aspects and solutions related to energy- and bandwidth-efficient communication links and networks. The main target is the development of techniques and algorithms, as well as their performance analysis, focusing on: i) energy-efficient terminals, with a special attention to the simultaneous optimization of transmission parameters belonging to multiple layers of the protocol stack, and energy aware design, ii) resource allocation for heterogeneous radio-access mechanisms and different network architectures, with focus onto the conflicts and synergies between the cooperation/competition paradigms in complex network architectures to minimize energy consumption with constraints on the quality of experience, iii) interference management in wireless networks, with emphasis on the various techniques for interference mitigation, and, iv) network optimization under advanced metrics such as power consumption and terminal energy depletion (time to live) for routing protocols.
