Abstract

Reducing our power consumption is an urgent issue which has important economical and ecological benefits. By using femtocell technology the mobile network can become far more energy efficient than it is today. In this paper, we describe what femtocell technology is and introduce outdoor femtocell distribution strategies that can save the network power. We also compare the usage of typical short-range base stations in place of femtocells and show that femtocells are more efficient. The results of the introduced strategies show that significant power savings of up to 92% can be achieved on a per-macrocell basis if implemented.
