Abstract

The idea of Smart home in smart city is the most acceptable in the cloud computing and Internet of Things (IOT) world. The traffic emanating from the smart home is a major challenge. This significant amount of traffic can be handled by the small cell i.e. home eNodeB (HeNB). Small cell has a property of self organizing (SON) and self healing to efficiently handle the indoor traffic between various devices (e.g mobile, laptop, home appliances, sensors and Body Area Network (BAN). Moreover, the success of smart city depends on the availability of broadband service to support the huge number of devices. Thus, in this paper introduction of small cell in smart home network is discussed and an algorithm is proposed which saves energy by switching off the redundant small cells known as sleep mode mechanism. Here open access operation of small cell is considered. The energy saving algorithms will result considerable amount of gain (Quality of Service (QoS)) which leads to energy efficiency.
