Abstract : Low power radios, such as the CC2420, have been widely popular with recent sensor platforms. This paper ex- plores the potential for energy savings from adding a high- power, high-bandwidth radio to current sensor platforms. High-bandwidth radios consume more power but signifi- cantly reduce the time for transmissions. Consequently, they offer net savings in total communication energy when there is enough data to offset wake-up energy overhead. The analysis on energy characteristics of several IEEE 802.11 radios show that a feasible crossover point exists (in terms of data size) after which energy savings are possible. Based on this analysis, we present a bulk data transmission proto- col for dual radio systems. The results of simulations and prototype implementation show significant energy savings at the expense of introducing acceptable delay.
