Optimal Microcell Deployment for Effective Mobile Device Energy Saving in Heterogeneous Networks

Abstract : Heterogeneous network (HetNet) is considered as an energy efficient system structure to alleviate the problem of rapidly increasing power consumption in the wireless communication system. Significant research on HetNet energy efficiency has been conducted. However, most of them only consider power consumption of Base Stations (BSs) while ignoring influence on energy efficiency of Mobile Devices (MDs) brought by new BSs deployment. In this work, we propose a novel energy efficiency metric for HetNet, which considers the energy efficiency of both BSs and MDs. Under the coexisting scenario of a single macrocell and a single microcell, we analyze the changes in power consumption at both the BSs side and the MDs side with the deployment of a micro BS. Optimum microcell radii for maximum power saving at the MDs sides and for highest network energy efficiency are obtained through analytical studies. It is found that total power saving for microcell MDs is close to 18% with a proper deployment of a microcell. Finally, extensive simulations have been provided to establish the accuracy of our theoretical analysis.
