Abstract [en]

Fiber-wireless sensor networks (Fi-WSNs) composed of a hybrid fiber-wireless (FiWi) network enhanced with sensors will play a key role in supporting machine-to-machine (M2M) communications to enable a wide range of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, of which smart grids represent an important real-world example. This paper explores opportunities of designing an energy-efficient Fi-WSN based on EPON/10G-EPON, WLAN, wireless sensors, and passive fiber optic sensors as a shared communications infrastructure for broadband services and smart grids. A novel energy conservation scheme for sensor enhanced FiWi networks (ECO-SFiWi) is proposed to reduce the overall energy consumption. ECO-SFiWi maximizes energy efficiency by leveraging TDMA to schedule power-saving modes of EPON's optical network units, wireless stations, and wireless sensors and incorporate them into EPON's bandwidth allocation algorithm. To study the performance, a comprehensive energy saving model and a delay analysis of both FiWi traffic and sensor data based on M/G/1 queue modeling are presented. FPGA-based hardware emulation and demonstration are performed to verify the effectiveness of the proposed solution. Results provide deep insights into the tradeoff between energy savings and frame delays. Noticeably, ECO-SFiWi achieves significant amounts of energy saving, while maintaining low delay for FiWi traffic and sensor data under typical deployment scenarios.
