Abstract: For wireless embedded systems, the power consumption in the network interface (radio) plays a dominant role in determining battery life. In this paper, we explore transport protocol optimizations for reducing the energy consumption of wireless LAN interfaces. Our work is based on the observation that, the transport protocol, which implements flow control to regulate the network traffic, plays a significant role in determining the workload of the network interface. Hence, by monitoring run-time parameters in th…
