This paper investigates the green or energy efficient operation of cellular access networks through dynamic spectrum and traffic load management techniques. Different energy saving techniques are discussed along with applications in realistic multi-cellular scenarios. The use of base station cooperation is discussed. The outage probability analysis is also discussed for different energy saving techniques in order to satisfy a particular Quality-of-Service (QoS) threshold for different services. The analysis is supported by different base station power consumption models, traffic models, and realistic statistics of different base stations in London, UK. Results show a considerable power saving potential of up to 65% or more in base station power.
