Environmental Engineering (EE); Measurement method for power consumption and energy efficiency of wireless access network equipment
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
The present document defines methods to analyse the power consumption and the energy efficiency of base stations in static and dynamic mode respectively.
The present document version covers the following radio access technologies:
•WiMAXTM (informative only).
The methodology described in the present document is to measure base station static power consumption and dynamic energy efficiency. Within the present document they are referred to as static and dynamic measurements.
The results based on "static" measurements of the BS power consumption provide a power consumption figure for BS under static load. The results based on "dynamic" measurements of the BS provide energy efficincy information for BS with dynamic load.
Energy consumption of terminal (end-user) equipment is outside the scope of the present document.
The scope of the present document is not to define target values for the power consumption nor the energy efficiency of equipment.
The results should only be used to assess and compare the power consumption and the energy efficiency of base stations.
The present document does not cover multi RAT and MCPA. Only Wide Area Base Stations are covered in this version. Other type of BS will be considered in future versions of the present document.
