Limiting Power Transmission of Green Cellular Networks: Impact on Coverage and Capacity
Source: Telecom ParisTech
Reducing power transmission is of primary importance in future green cellular networks. First of all, the induced reduction of the interference encourages the deployment of opportunistic radios in the same spectrum. Then, it directly implies a reduction of the energy consumption. At last, electric field radiations reduction mitigates the potential risks on health. From a technical point of view, power control is however likely to degrade network performance. In this paper, the authors evaluate the impact of power reduction on the coverage and the capacity of cellular networks.
