Abstract

In the context of wireless user’s increasing demands for better device power and battery management, this paper investigates some factors that can impact the power consumption on the energy consumption of mobile devices. The focus is on two factors when performing multimedia streaming: the impact of the traffic location within a WLAN; and the impact of the radio access network technology (WLAN, HSDPA, UMTS). The energy measurement results show that by changing the quality level of the multimedia stream the energy can be greatly conserved while the user perceived quality level is still acceptable. Moreover, by using the cellular interface much more energy is consumed (up to 61%) than by using the WLAN interface.
