Abstract [en]

Integrated fiber-wireless (FiWi) access networks aim at taking full advantage of the reliability and high capacity of the optical backhaul along with the flexibility, ubiquity, and cost savings of the wireless/cellular front-end to provide broadband services for both mobile and fixed users. In FiWi access networks, energy efficiency issues must be addressed in a comprehensive fashion that takes into account not only wireless front-end but also optical backhaul segments to extend the battery life of wireless devices and allow operators to reduce their OPEX, while not compromising quality of service (QoS). This paper proposes an energy conservation scheme for FiWi networks (ECO-FiWi) that jointly schedules power-saving modes of wireless stations and access points and optical network units to reduce their energy consumption. ECO-FiWi maximizes the overall network performance by leveraging TDMA to synchronize the power-saving modes and incorporate them into the dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) process. A comprehensive energy saving model and an M/G/1 queuing-based analysis of downstream and upstream end-to-end frame delays are presented accounting for both backhaul and front-end network segments. Analytical results show that ECO-FiWi achieves significant amounts of energy saving, while preserving upstream delay and incurring a low delay for downstream traffic.
