Abstract

Energy-efficient wireless networks are essential to reduce the effect of global warming and to minimize the operational costs of future networks. In this paper we investigate approaches exploiting spatial correlations that offer a high potential to significantly decrease the total energy consumption thus enabling “green” wireless networks. In particular, we analyze the impact of distributed compression and optimized node deployments on the energy-efficiency of networks. Furthermore, we present results on the operational lifetime of networks which is often a major performance criterion from applications’ perspective.
