Supriya Marutirao Birajdar, A K Tamboli"LTE-A Network through DRX Configuration and Development of power saving device", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V36(2),102-105 June 2016. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group

Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) is designed to keep up with the today’s rapidly growing data traffic, especially with proliferation of smart phones and mobile applications. In this paper, we first develop an analytical model to estimate power saving achieved by DRX mechanism for active traffic with LTE-A network. A tradeoff scheme is then formulated to maintain a balance between these two performance parameters based on operator’s preference for power saving and delay requirement of traffic. The analytical model is validated using system level simulation results obtained from NS2 Simulator.
