Power consumption represents an exciting subject in the field of mobile communication networks. In the last decades, the radio access networks have witnessed a denoting augmentation in power consumption, and this has indirect drawbacks on both environment and economic sides. The increase of power consumption conduct to both a substantial growth in CO2 emissions and on the operational expenditure of network operators. For this reason, minimizing power consumption in mobile cellular networks has become mandatory. In this paper, we suggest a power saving scheme in LTE-Advanced based Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet) by the mean of switching ON/OFF eNodeB (eNB) and tilt modification of neighbors.
