In IEEE 802.16m networks, the existing power saving models (PSMs) had been developed by assuming traffic as Poisson arrival with exponential interarrival time or generalized traffic process. However, the mobile Internet traffic presumes Pareto/Weibull arrival with Pareto interarrival time. The existing PSM with this traffic causes frequent battery drain out at the mobile stations (MSs) with inappropriateness of the sleep parameters. Hence, in this paper, a PSM is derived for MS with mobile Internet traffic by considering the traffic parameters, namely scaling, shaping and location or threshold. A combined power saving class (PSC) is also suggested to improve the system performance with the developed PSM. The effectiveness of the developed model is validated by means of numerical results.
