Toward 5G: A Novel Sleeping Strategy for Green Distributed Base Stations in Small Cell Networks

Confronted with the rapidly increasing demand of mobile traffic and heavy energy consumption on base stations (BSs), the base station (BS) sleeping strategy becomes a promising method to promote the system energy efficiency (EE). To switch off the redundant small-cell base stations (s-BSs) without whittling down the network EE in small cell networks, we… CONTINUE READING
