Cell zooming technology is an emerging and potential technology used in 5G cellular networks. It helps in accomplishing higher energy efficiency, and ensures quality of service also. The advantage of cell zooming technology is partial by the enlarged outage probability. This paper presents a detailed novel study on energy efficiency and QoS when cell zooming method is used in 5G networks. In this paper, techniques that give solution for traffic load imbalance and reduction of energy consumption by cell zooming simulations are discussed.
