An Energy Efficiency Assessment for Indoor Small Cells Using Copper-Based Backhaul

Albert Richard Moraes Lopes, Fabrício S. Farias, and João Crisóstomo Weyl Albuquerque Costa
Abstract—Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) are being adopted as the main alternative for reducing the energy consumption in wireless network. This adoption forces the backhaul architectures expansion, and consequently it increases the overall network energy consumption. In the last years, copper technology has been disregarded to backhaul indoor small cells. However, lately the copper-based technology turned out as an effective option due to the femtocell technology based on wireless over cable (FemtoWoC). In this paper , it was assessed two backhaul architectures , using copper in the last mile, to connect FemtoWoC in the network. It was also evaluated the energy-effiency achieved compared to the results in scenarios using conventional femtocells.

Index Terms—Energy efficiency, mobile backhaul, small cells.
