We consider the problem of energy-efficient base-station (BS) planning for green cellular network design. There exist a number of criteria for greenness in the literature, but we focus only on the energy-normalized throughput. We first model energy consumption for a heterogeneous network, consisting of macro and micro base-stations, and a network topology.(More)
Recent global concerns about greenhouse gas necessitate new approach to every element of information and communication technology. Therefore, considering a greenness as another constraint in base-station planning problem is required. There exists a large body of work on network design and base-station planning, but these have not taken greenness into(More)
We solve the problem of environmentally friendly (i.e., energy-efficient) base station and relay-station planning for a simplified cooperative cellular network. We assume a two-hop transmission model based on the time-division multiplexing operation. We propose a twostep iterative algorithm where each iteration consists of an assignment step and a(More)
