Impact of Data Compression on Energy Consumption of Wireless-Networked Handheld Devices

  title={Impact of Data Compression on Energy Consumption of Wireless-Networked Handheld Devices},
  author={Rong Xu and Zhiyuan Li and Cheng Wang and Peifeng Ni},
We investigate the use of data compression to reduce the batt ry consumed by handheld devices when downloading data from proxy servers over a wireless LAN. To make a careful trad e-off between the communication energy and the overhead to perform decompression, we experiment with three universal lo s ess compression schemes, using a popular handheld dev ice in a wireless LAN environment and we find interesting facts. The results show that, from the battery-saving perspective , hegzip compression… CONTINUE READING
