How an efficient TCP/IP implementation can extend the battery life of a mobile device?
Efficient TCP/IP implementation can reduce packet loss rate, data transfer time and resource consumption. Retransmissions of the packet eat up most of the battery power unnecessarily. If the packet loss can be reduced by the efficient flow control and congestion control mechanism then the packet retransmissions reduced significantly that conserve battery energy of a mobile device.
