Abstract

In this paper, we discuss power save mechanisms that allow hosts to go to sleep to conserve energy. When sleeping hosts need to receive packets from other hosts. Thus, these hosts must somehow wake up the sleeping hosts. The paper discusses a busy-tone mechanism for this purpose, and an approach to improve the mechanism by using multiple busy tones. We generalize this protocol to develop the notion of multi-level power save mechanisms, and present some examples to illustrate this notion.
