Energy Efficient Network Deployment with Cell DTX
2014 (English)In: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, Vol. 18, no 6, 977-980 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Cell discontinuous transmission (DTX) is a newfeature that enables sleep mode operations at base station (BS)side during the transmission time intervals (TTIs) when thereis no traffic. In this letter, we analyze the maximum achievableenergy saving of the cell DTX. We incorporate the cell DTXwith a clean-slate network deployment, and obtain optimal BSdensity for lowest energy consumption satisfying a certain qualityof service (QoS) requirement considering daily traffic variation.The numerical result indicates that the fast traffic adaptationcapability of cell DTX favors dense network deployment withlightly loaded cells, which brings about considerable improvementin energy saving.
