A Review on Energy Efficiency Challenges and Techniques for EE in 5G Network

Anika Chaudhary, Himanshi .



This paper includes the survey of Energy Efficiency challenges and need in 5G network and D2D technique to improve energy efficiency without comprising the user experience. Improving the energy efficiency is important part while designing a network. The cellular systems must be energy efficient, especially in mobile communication which has made the battery constraint a major issue. This has motivated optimization of energy for the use of mobile devices. Mobile operators are amongst the top energy consumers as their consumption is growing at a very fast rate. Also, the base station (BS) consumes a large part of the energy generating a large amount of electricity bill. Thus, both from the operator’s and the consumer’s point of view, obtaining energy efficiency (EE) has significant economic benefits. Various approaches and techniques for energy optimization has been discussed in detail in this paper.

Keywords: Energy Efficiency (EE), base station (BS), Device-to-device Technology (D2D). Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT), orthogonal frequency-division (OFDM), Multiple Input multiple output (MIMO)
