The RRM strategies and the deployment guidelines to be adopted in a multi-layer heterogeneous mobile network with the goal of the optimization of the Area Power Consumption are presented in this paper: in the considered scenarios, several radio environments are considered, the coverage is guaranteed by different cell types, and the capacity and blockage probability are kept unaltered by the adoption of the green radio approaches with respect to basic configuration. The benefits in terms of energy savings are determined for all possible solutions: within this framework we compare alternative approaches, such as the macro-cell coverage and the strategies which resorts to a higher number of lower power micro-cells to cover the spot.
