There is a need to develop energy-efficient adaptive systems for future telecommunication networks. While traffic varies at different times, the power consumption of the radio access network does not scale with it effectively. To make significant energy savings, a dynamic deployment approach is required to allow the system to operate in an energy-efficient mode with respect to traffic load. By deploying small base stations within the area of a conventional macro station, we are able to reduce energy consumption while maintaining QoS. This paper proposes an energy-efficient dynamic deployment architecture based on fuzzy-logic. The algorithm aids in the decision of the architecture layout deployment. Moreover, by implementing the proposed adaptive energy-efficient algorithm, the network gains flexibility that can increase coverage or throughput throughout the same network by adapting its operation to source its requirements better and change them when new requirements arise.
