A New Sustainable Mechanism to Wake-up Base Stations in Mobile Networks

Abstract : The Radio Access Network (RAN) represents the large amount of the annual energy consumed in mobile networks. The Base Station (BS) constitutes the main component of a RAN and the its switches ON/OFF is one of the most commonly used technique in literary work to reduce the energy consumption. However, a significant amount of energy is consumed by the BS even with the standby mode. In this paper, we address the problem of energy consumption in mobile networks and propose a new and original wake-up mechanism for base stations based on Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). Our proposal aims to carry out a complete shutdown of the base stations during low traffic periods in order to reduce the RAN energy consumption. Then, the wake-up process is handled by the Core Network through a LPWAN dedicated for Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as the Long Range (LoRa) system. We first present the architecture of our solution and we explain our wake-up mechanism. Then, we show the performance of our solution through simulation results.
