Abstract

Although network devices embed low power states as an effective mechanism for reducing energy waste, their use is usually hindered due to the need of maintaining network connectivity for remote access, Instant Messengers (IMs), VoIP clients and other Internet-centric applications. To foster wide usage of low-power states, a low-power entity called Network Connectivity Proxy (NCP) can be designed that maintains the network presence for a set of sleeping devices and wakes them up only when their services/resources are required. This demo paper briefly presents our NCP design and a set of generalized functionalities implemented.
