—Self-organizing networks are considered to be the next generation technology for network management and, therefore , also treated as one possible way to tackle economical and ecological challenges in the future. In this paper, we extend our framework for integrated self-organizing networks by the energy saving management self-organizing network use case.(More)
—The industrial wireless automation sector exhibits a huge market growth in the last years. Today, many applications already use wireless technologies. However, the existing wireless solutions do not yet offer sufficient performance with respect to real-time and reliability requirements, particularly for closed-loop control applications. As a result, low(More)
—With the explosion of wireless communications in number of users and data rates, the reduction of network power consumption becomes more and more critical. This is especially true for base stations which represent a dominant share of the total power in cellular networks. In order to study power reduction techniques, a convenient power model is required,(More)
—One major topic of research into SON technology is the coordination of SON use cases. Network operators expect a coordinated handling of the parameter and configuration changes submitted to the operating network by closed-loop SON use case implementations. Beside a published conceptual framework, SON coordination has already been treated in the literature,(More)
—Mobile traffic demand varies significantly in time and space. Hence, wireless radio resources in hotspot areas and at peak traffic hours may be scarce. Consequently, special attention has to be paid to effects induced by admission control, i. e., blocking of data requests by base stations in case of high utilization or overload. Moreover, rising traffic(More)
With the rollout of LTE networks the energy consumption of wireless networks will further increase. We study the impact of power amplifier improvements in combination with scheduling strategies for traffic profiles expected around 2015. We compare a scheduling policy with adapted bandwidth (capacity) using a power amplifier with adaptive operation point vs.(More)
