Growing energy demands, the increasing depletion of traditional energy resources, together with the recent surge in mobile internet traffic, all call for green solutions to address the challenge of energy-efficient wireless access networks. In this paper, we consider possible power saving by reducing the number of active BSs and adjusting the transmit power of those that remain active while maintaining a satisfying service for all users in the network. We thus introduce a joint optimization problem that minimizes the network power consumption of the network and the sum of network user transmission delays. Our formulation allows us to investigate the tradeoff between power and delay by tuning the respective weighting factors. Moreover, to reduce the computational complexity of the optimal solution of our non-linear optimization problem, we convert it into a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem. We provide extensive simulations for various decision preferences such as power minimization, delay minimization and joint minimization of power and delay. The results we present show that we obtain power savings of up to 16% compared to legacy network models.
