Abstract -
Deployment count of femtocell base stations has already exceeded the count of macrocell base stations and it is expected to increase further. Deployment of femtocell comes with both capital and operational expenditure from operators' side. In order to facilitate dense femtocell deployment, especially in rural and remote areas, the availability of wired backhaul and round the clock grid power are major concerns. In this paper, we suggest an energy efficient cell selection scheme for femtocell based cellular network considering the energy consumption and capacity constraint at the backhaul links. Our proposed cell selection scheme improves the energy efficiency of the femtocell network by not only considering the energy consumption at base stations but also at the backhaul links. Obtained results are verified using extensive simulations.
