Abstract—In our previous work, the limitation of standard Type I and II power saving in IEEE 802.16e was discussed and the idea of Load-Based Power Saving (LBPS) was proposed. LBPS measures traffic load and adaptively generates proper sleep schedule for the current load. Three LBPS schemes has been proposed for MSS (Mobile Subscriber Station) power saving. In this paper, BS power saving is taken into consideration, and our previously proposed LBPS schemes are revised in order to integrate both BS (Base Station) and MSS in sleep scheduling. Two strategies of integrated power saving, MSS-first and BS-first, are proposed in the paper. Simulation study shows that the proposed schemes can effectively achieve high power saving efficiency for both BS and MSS.
