Air-interfaces for ultra-low power communications – challenges, solutions and potential benefits
This talk will motivate the need and survey solutions for “zero-energy” air-interfaces that do not draw power from the device’s battery. The need to effectively address existing use cases and enable emerging use cases ranging from secondary handsets, industrial IoT sensors, wearables and battery-less implants will be explored. A brief survey of power saving methods introduced to date in the 3GPP framework will be presented. Design approaches and technology solutions to break the power consumption vs latency tradeoffs in current state-of-the-art wireless systems will be explored. Technology solutions needed to enable battery-less operation of wireless devices will be surveyed. The potential benefit of such air-interfaces including device battery life extension and reachability improvement as well as the reduction in network signaling requirements will be highlighted. The challenge associated with supporting a diverse set of deployment scenarios under a single unified system framework will be considered.
