The current generation of mobile terminals can communicate on multiple modes using several antennas. However, their energy consumption remains a critical parameter. In this paper, we explore the combination of multiple communication modes and MIMO as a possible way to reduce the energy consumption of both the terminals and the network. We propose a realistic energy model for the PHY layer of a MIMO and multi-mode terminal, taking into account the MAC layer behaviour. We show that thedoi:10.1109/wd.2011.6098141 dblp:conf/wd/Levy-BenchetonVR11 fatcat:wzvwofxvoras5hwb2lw4squanu
