Energy-aware planning and management of wireless mesh networks

, et

In this paper we introduce a joint planning and energy management framework for Wireless Mesh Networks. In order to show that power management should be integrated at the planning steps to produce an effective energy-efficient network, we present a mathematical model considering a trade-off between capital and energy-related operational expenses. Results demonstrating the impact of different coverage strategies on the energy efficiency are also showed.
