Reducing Mobile Device Energy Consumption in Transmitting Multimedia Content by Arranging Transport Protocol Load
MetadataShow full item record
There are two standard transport layer protocols that are used in the internet protocol (IP) networks: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP). Both protocols can be used for video streaming. This paper studies energy consumptions in a mobile device when one of these protocols employed for video streaming. A transport protocol load management is proposed to reduce the overall energy consumptions. The experiments of video transmissions from a mobile device in the 802.11 environment show that the proposed method is able to minimize mobile device energy consumptions up to 10.7% and 3.34% for both TCP and UDP protocols.
