Energy Efficient Cellular Strategy: Virtual Cell Based Recoverable Sleeping Mode
Global warming has drawn more and more attention from ICT industries to reduce the energy consumption of mobile cellular network recently. Lots of techniques to make the energy efficiency network, e.g. making the cell with low load switch off, have been proposed but less research on how to offer the Quality of Service(QoS) guarantee to the users which were connected to the off cell. Due to this fact, we propose a novel mechanism to form a virtual cell, replacing the original ‘switch off’ cell to guarantee the users’ QoS without introducing new power consumption. This novel mechanism can also be embedded into current and future cellular network system, e.g. LTE, LTE-A, to make the high energy efficiency of network and very well user’s experience at the same time.
