Efficient Selection of Source Devices and Radio Interfaces for Green Ds2D Communications Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. In this paper, a novel devices-to-device (Ds2D) communication paradigm is proposed to enable green (energy efficient) wireless networks. Different from the conventional D2D communications, the sink device establishes simultaneous associations with multiple source devices for file download using its multiple radio interfaces and the multi-homing technique. In such a networking setting, we propose a network-controlled algorithm for optimal selection of source devices and their respective radio interfaces to support green Ds2D communications. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed Ds2D communication paradigm under optimal selection of source devices and radio interfaces presents an improved energy efficiency performance compared with the conventional D2D communications, and leads to a lower energy consumption per source device.
