Abstract: This paper investigate the problem regarding the minimization of the power of the base station by using the cell zooming technique. In this paper, we mainly focused on reducing the power consumed at the base station end, whereas most of the power minimization related work in the literature today is focused on the mobile end only. Cell zooming is a technology that promises to minimize the resource utilization. This technique is designed to save the energy consumed by the base station by maintaining the quality of services. To understand the working of the cell zooming techniques centralized algorithm is a very basic way. Our simulations shows that the proposed technique can achieve upto 25% reduction in the power consumption over the base station.
Keywords: Cell zooming, Traffic load, energy efficiency, base stations, bandwidth utilization, spectral efficiency, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and power allocation.
