Energy Efficiency in cellular mobile radio networks has recently gained great interest in the research community. Besides the positive effect on global climate change, lowering power consumption of mobile networks is beneficial in terms of decreasing the operational cost for network operators. In this regard, the development of more energy efficient hardware and software components aside, effect of different deployment strategies on energy efficiency are also studied in the literature. In this paper, we investigate the energy efficiency improvements through different heterogeneous networks for both uniform and non-uniform traffic distribution scenarios. It has been shown that, using small power low base stations at the cell border decreases the power consumption significantly for both traffic scenarios and the most energy efficient deployment strategy highly depends on the area throughput demand of the system.
