Energy-efficient protocols for wireless networks with adaptive MIMO capabilities
Transmission power control has been used in wireless networks to improve the channel reuse and/or reduce energy consumption. It has been mainly applied to single-input single-output (SISO) systems, where each node is equipped with a single antenna. In this paper, we propose a power-controlled channel access protocol for MIMO-capable wireless LANs with two antennas per node. Our protocol, called E-BASIC, extends the classic CSMA/CA access scheme by allowing for dynamic adjustment of the transmission mode and the transmission power on a per-packet basis so as to minimize the total energy consumption. By transmission mode we mean one of the four possible transmit/receive antenna configurations: 1
