This paper studies the problem of energy conservation of mobile terminals in a multi-cell TDMA network supporting real-time sessions. The corresponding optimization problem involves joint scheduling, rate control, and power control, which is often highly complex to solve. To reduce the solution complexity, we decompose the overall problem into two sub-problems: intra-cell energy optimization and inter-cell interference control. The solution of the two subproblems results in a "win-win" situation: both the energy consumptions and inter-cell interference are reduced simultaneously. We simulate our decomposition method with the typical parameters in WiMAX system, and the simulation results show that our decomposition method can achieve an energy reduction of more than 70% compared with the simplistic maximum transmit power policy. Furthermore, the inter-cell interference power can be reduced by more than 35% compared with the maximum transmit power policy. We find that the interference power stays largely constant throughout a TDMA frame in our decomposition method. Based on this premise, we derive an interesting decoupling property: if the idle power consumption of terminals is no less than their circuit power consumption, or when both are negligible, then the energy-optimal transmission rates of the users are independent of the inter-cell interference power.
