There is a growing need to develop more robust and energy-efficient network architectures to cope with ever increasing traffic and energy demands. The aim is also to achieve energy-efficient adaptive cellular system architecture capable of delivering a high quality of service (QoS) whilst optimising energy consumption. To gain significant energy savings, new dynamic architectures will allow future systems to achieve energy saving whilst maintaining QoS at different levels of traffic demand. We consider a heterogeneous cellular system where the elements of it can adapt and change their architecture depending on the network demand. We demonstrate substantial savings of energy, especially in low-traffic periods where most mobile systems are over engineered. Energy savings are also achieved in high-traffic periods by capitalising on traffic variations in the spatial domain. We adopt a fuzzy-logic algorithm for the multi-objective decisions we face in the system, where it provides stability and the ability to handle imprecise data.
