Comparison of LTE eMBMS and DVB-NGH mobile TV solutions from an energy consumption perspective

Abstract : The power demand of future wireless networks is predicted to dramatically increase. This energy consumption issue, if unaddressed, will restrict the roll-out of many new services. Based on this fact, we try in this paper to study and compare the energy consumption of the most popular mobile TV delivery solutions: LTE eMBMS and DVB-NGH. We study the energy consumption in a region where Mobile TV is delivered by a standalone LTE network and a standalone DVB-NGH transmitter or by a cooperative LTE/DVB network. By cooperation we mean that the mobile TV coverage is ensured by DVB in the region surrounding a broadcasting tower and by LTE otherwise. Our work is a simulation one and can be used as an offline study that enables the operators to configure their networks towards a Green Mobile TV delivery. Results shows that the cooperation will decrease the power consumption of at least one of the cooperative operators (LTE and/or DVB) and thus it will certainly decrease the overall power consumption in the service region for a high level Green Mobile TV solution.
