The effectiveness of Pico cells on mobile technology
Author(s): Raj Kumar Jaiswal
Abstract: The Implementation of small cells in mobile phones has created large interests from past few decades. This paper investigates the effects of implementation of Pico cells on the working performance as well as power consumption of mobile networking .Since different network updates introduce different pursuance gain comparing different configurations exclusively on their overall power Consumption can be rather biased. That is why, a new key word commonly known as “Energy Efficiency” introduced and frequently used throughout this study. In the first stage of this paper, a detailed study for the Erlang is performed which is the capacity of a network by considering a uniform topology and traffic by using queuing theory analysis, namely processor sharing queues. Results proved that in all cases the implementation of pico cells improve the performance of the network, however the efficiency dependent on the deployment scenario to be considered. In the second part of the study, a more naturalistic outline with non-uniform topology and traffic is considered, which is carried out through a large scale system level simulator. Results proved that by implementing pico cells in areas experiencing high level of traffic, the energy efficiency of network can be drastically improved. The last part of this study includes the areas of applications of pico cells which include building coverage capacity, filling network black spots, etc, advantages and disadvantages of implementing pico cells in mobile network.
