Commercial deployment of 4G LTE networks and rapid penetration of smart phones have exponentially increased the wireless data traffic, thus increasing the energy consumption and greenhouse (CO2) gas emission. The concept of green 4G LTE networks lies in the development of energy efficient LTE systems for reducing the greenhouse emissions as well as operators' energy bill. In this letter we first identify the complexity of the optimal traffic awareness in LTE networks and subsequently design a… CONTINUE READING
