Introduction This study aims to investigate the usages of data compression to reduce the energy consumption in a hand-held device. By conducting experiments as the methodologies, the impacts of transmission on energy consumption are explored on wireless interfaces. 9 lossless compression algorithms are examined on popular Internet traffic in the view of compression ratio, speed and consumed energy. Energy consumption of uplink, downlink and overall system is investigated to achieve a comprehensive understanding of compression in wireless networks.
Why is it needed Energy Consumption ICT infrastructure total: power consumption 2.1 TWh -2.3% of all power consumption in Finland ICT user terminals total: power consumption 4.6 TWh -5.1% of all power consumption in Finland Greenhouse gas emissions ICT contribution to Greenhouse Gas emission: 2.5% = 1.0 GtCO2eq Mobile user energy consumption is approximate 29kWh = 55 kgco2eq Battery UMTS, HSDPA, IEEE802.11b/g and Bluetooth Camera, GPS, music, movies EFORE Oy,2008
Motivation Energy consumed on a single bit transmission over wireless is over 1000 times greater than a single 32-bit CPU computation Compression reduces file sizes Trade-off between computation and communication
Problems David Salomon-” Data compression is popular for two reasons: (1) People like to accumulate data and hate to throw anything away. No matter how big a storage device one has, sooner or later it is going to overflow. Data compression seems useful because it delays this inevitability. (2) People hate to wait a long time for data transfers.” Data compression is not energy-oriented. Blind or unconditional compressions for energy- aware communication related to wireless networks may result in wasting of energy and even slowing down transmission rate.
Compression Lossy compression is one where compressing data and then decompressing it retrieves data that may well be different from the original G.711, G.726 and AMR WMA and MP3 JPEG and PGF MPEG, H.261, H.263 and H.264 Lossless compression is in contrast to represent information which can be recovered into the original data without any mismatch. Text compression
Conclusions Hard-to-compress files Direct sending -JPG, MP3, EXE and WMA Easy-to-compress files Compressing first -BIN, HTML, BMP and XML Compressible files Depending on circumstance -PDF and SWF Generic compression programs providing great energy savings. -gzip, lzma and lzo Energy saving with proper usage of compression in wireless networks -Uplink: ~57% -Downlink: ~50% -Overall: ~50%
Future Study Energy efficiency-driven transmission Other compression algorithms and programs Other traffic, wireless interface behavior Energy consumption of 3G devices Modeling energy consumption of compression
