Energy conservation has become a critical issue around the world. In smart phones, battery power capabilities are not keeping up with the advances in other technologies (e.g., processing and memory) and are rapidly becoming a concern, especially in view of the growth in usage of energy-hungry mobile multimedia streaming. The deficiency in battery power and the need for reduced energy consumption provides motivation for researchers to develop energy efficient techniques in order to manage the power consumption in next-generation wireless networks. As there is little analysis in the literature on the relationship between the wireless environment and the mobile device energy consumption, this paper investigates the impact of network-related factors (e.g., network load and signal quality level) on the power consumption of the mobile device in the context of video delivery. This paper analyzes the energy consumption of an Android device and the efficiency of the system in several scenarios while performing video delivery (over UDP or TCP) on an IEEE 802.11g network. The results show that the network load and the signal quality level have a combined significant impact on the energy consumption. This analysis can be further used when proposing energy efficient adaptive multimedia and handover mechanisms.
