COMMUNICATE GREEN - Energy Efficient Mobile Communication

Abstract

In order to fulfill today’s high demands on mobile network usage, mobile network providers in Germany have around 100.000 base stations working 24/7. The permanent availability of those network components causes a significant energy consumption. Through an adaptive and context-aware power management in mobile networks, a considerable amount of energy can be saved by maintaining the high quality of experience at the same time. There are a lot of contextual information present in mobile network components and end devices, which can help to calculate decisions for a dynamic de- and reactivation of network components. This position paper discusses the idea of a context entity that aggregates and processes various types of contextual information, and the integration of it into the mobile network architecture.
