Reducing energy consumption becomes an important issue in mobile communication systems. Especially, base station (BS) is suspected to be a major component of energy consumption budget. To solve this problem we can adopt femtocell systems with Bs sleep mode. In this paper, we propose two BS sleep mode procedure to improve energy efficiency. Simulation results show that the proposed procedures can reduce energy consumption especially in femtocell environment.
