Mobile devices are increasingly assuming an important role in ‚Äúsmart home‚ÄĚ network environments. Although their computing, storage and networking capabilities have evolved significantly, these devices remain power-constrained and, therefore, there is need to actively take measures to minimize their power consumption. In this paper, we propose a Power Saving (PS) mechanism for mobile devices in Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) home networks, which allows them to conserve power without compromising their higher-layer functionality. The proposed mechanism introduces a level of indirection that abstracts the low-level low-power support of different wireless bearers and exposes a uniform interface to higher-layer entities, such as applications and Universal‚ÄďPlug-and-Play (UPP) agents. We define four abstract NC-PS modes and describe their mapping in the case of Bluetooth, a common wireless bearer for mobile devices, now supported in DLNA. Battery power is an important resource in Ad-hoc networks. It has been observed that in Ad-hoc networks, routing control messages and data transmission, these timers are set and refreshed on-demand. Nodes that are not involved in energy consumption do not reflect the communication activities in the network.
