The explosive development of ICT (information and communication technology) industry has emerged as one of the major sources of world energy consumption. Therefore, this paper concerns about the BS (base station) energy saving issue, for most energy consumption of the communication network comes from the BSs and the core network. Particularly, we consider dynamically turning of certain BSs when the network tra±c is low. Centralized and decentralized implementations are investigated. Simulations demonstrate the energy e±ciency of the proposed algorithms and the tradeoff between energy saving and coverage guarantee.
