Tut‐07: Green Wireless IoT Networking and Edge Computing

Green Wireless IoT Networking and Edge Computing

ID: Tut-07



In recent years, the increase in electricity prices and the focus on achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs) have made green wireless networking design a critical area for IoT system operations. As a result, IoT service operators have started to invest in and implement green wireless networking practices to reduce their carbon footprint and energy consumption. Additionally, 3GPP has also put significant effort into establishing an eco-friendly network. One example is the standardization and improvement of the Discontinuous Reception (DRX) mechanism, which resolves power consumption issues for devices with downlink packet call sessions, ultimately prolonging battery life. In fact, even in the latest Release 17, new modifications are being proposed to enhance the performance of the DRX mechanism. Thus, the intended audience for this tutorial includes researchers, practitioners, students and managers who would like to learn green wireless networking system and protocol design.

In this tutorial, the speakers will first cover energy-saving wireless networking protocol design in current 3GPP standard. In addition, green edge computing for IoT services also be covered. Later on, the key problems, technology solutions, and research issues in the next-generation green IoT system design will be covered. 6G research is a timely topic in both academia and industry. Several companies have published whitepapers that outline their vision for an energy-efficient 6G network. Green wireless networking design will be essential for 6G IoT system. It is a timely tutorial topic to cover the state-of-the-art of green IoT design and future research direction.
