The massive demand of mobile data traffic stimulates the emergence of cache-enabled heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets). Caching at the network edge can reduce the duplicated transmissions of the contents and improve users' quality of service (QoS), however, the dense deployment of cache-enabled small base stations (SBSs) and relays poses a challenge on energy consumption. Several emerging technologies have been focused on energy savings, such as energy harvesting and dynamic sleep mode… CONTINUE READING
