  author={Tao Yu and Shunqing Zhang and Xiaojing Chen and Xin Wang},
—As a core performance metric for green commu- nications, the conventional energy efficiency definition has suc-cessfully resolved many issues in the energy efficient wireless network design. In the past several generations of wireless communication networks, the traditional energy efficiency mea- sure plays an important role to guide many energy saving techniques for slow varying traffic profiles. However, for the next generation wireless networks, the traditional energy efficiency fails to capture…
