Base-Station Duty-Cycling and Traffic Buffering as a Means to Achieve Green Communications

Abstract

In this paper, we propose the Base-Station (BS) Discontinuous Transmission (DTX) as the means for saving energy. Traditional proposals utilize DTX at the BS to enable sleep modes under lightly loaded scenarios. However, we propose to shape the traffic to enable more frequent sleep modes at the BS, while ensuring the QoS requirements in terms of application… (More)
