In this paper, we analyze the power save and its impact on web traffic performance when customers adopt the continuous connectivity paradigm. To this aim, we provide a model for packet transmission and cost. We model each mobile user’s traffic with a realistic web traffic profile, and study the aggregate behavior of the users attached to a base station by means of a processor-shared queueing system. In particular, we evaluate user access delay, download time and expected economy of energy in the cell. The model is validated through packet-level simulations. Our model shows that dramatic energy save can be achieved by both mobile users and base stations, e.g., as much as 70% of the energy cost due to packet transmission at the base station.
