摘要：Existing works have addressed the tradeoffs between any two of the three performance metrics: throughput, energy efficiency (EE), and delay. In this paper, we unveil the intertwined relations among these three metrics under a unifying framework and particularly investigate the problem of EE-guaranteed throughput-delay tradeoff in interference-free wireless networks. We first propose two admission control schemes, referred to as the first-out and first-in schemes. We then formulate it as two stochastic optimization problems, aiming at throughput maximization (in the first-out scheme) or dropping rate minimization (in the first-in scheme) subject to requirement of EE (RoE), stability, admission control, and transmit power. To solve the problems, the EE-Guaranteed algorithm for throUghput-delAy tRaDeoff (eGuard), respectively called eGuard-I and eGuard-II in the first-out and first-in schemes, is devised. Moreover, with guaranteed RoE, we theoretically show that the eGuard (I and II) can not only push the throughput arbitrarily close to the optimal with tradeoffs in delay but also quantitatively control the throughput-delay performance on demand. Simulation results consolidate the theoretical analysis and particularly show the pros and cons of the two schemes.
