We present an experimental evaluation of energy usage and performance in a
wireless LAN cell based on a testbed using the 5GHz ISM band for 802.11a and
802.11n. We have taken an application-level approach, by varying the packet
size and transmission rate at the protocol level and evaluating energy usage
across a range of application transmission rates using both large and small
packet sizes. We have observed that both the application's transmission rate
and the packet size have an impact on energy efficiency for transmission in
our testbed. We also included in our experiments evaluation of the energy
efficiency of emulations of YouTube and Skype flows, and a comparison with
(wired) Ethernet transmissions.
