Abstract

We study the energy efficiency issue in 5G communications scenarios, where cognitive femtocells coexist with picocells operating at the same frequency bands. Optimal energy-efficient power allocation based on the sensing-based spectrum sharing (SBSS) is proposed for the uplink cognitive femto users operating in a multiuser MIMO mode. Both hard-decision and soft-decision schemes are considered for the SBSS. Different from the existing energy-efficient designs in multiuser scenarios, which consider system-wise energy efficiency, we consider user-wise energy efficiency and optimize them in a Pareto sense. To resolve the nonconvexity of the formulated optimization problem, we include an additional power constraint to convexify the problem without losing global optimality. Simulation results show that the proposed schemes significantly enhance the energy efficiency of the cognitive femto users compared with the existing spectral-efficient designs.
