O-RAN Network Energy Saving: Cell Switching On/Off

2022-12-01
In this blog post, we will provide the description of an algorithm, that can be realized as an rApp in the O-RAN architecture aimed at improving the network’s EE through intelligent Cell on/off switching. We provide a general framework for long-timescale EE optimization which can be done in Non-RT RIC. We then propose the implementation of the Cell On/Off Switching algorithm within the O-RAN framework. In the end, some opportunities and challenges are discussed.
