Energy efficiency in mobile networks is gaining in importance from both environmental and business points of view. In particular, site sleep mode techniques are being introduced along with self organizing procedures that enable a dynamic activation/deactivation of sites without compromising Quality of Service (QoS). As the research is progressively broadening towards increased energy efficiency, green concepts are being introduced in standardization. For instance, 3GPP and ETSI are introducing energy efficiency enablers within their mobile networks standards. This talk gives an overview on the latest theoretical advances in optimal control for energy efficiency in mobile networks and the related standardization activities.
