Abstract :

Energy-efficient adhoc network design is a challenging problem, because mobile units operate on batteries having limited energy. Energy efficiency problem of MANETs can be addressed at different layers. In recent years, many researchers have focused on the optimization of energy consumption of mob le nodes, from different points of view. In wireless networks, operation at all levels of the communication protocol stack has an impact on the energy consumption and therefore, energy efficiency has to be addressed jointly in all the layers of the protocol stack
