Power in any cellular network is a key degree of freedom in management of connectivity, energy factors, speed etc. In LTE network the power consumption is dominated by Evolve Node by significant amount of power, to compute this issue a mechanism has been proposed to reduce the power consumption. The power consumption issue is tackle by Discontinuous Transmission (DTX) mechanism where the evolve node is switch off for specified amount of time when there is no occurrence of packet. These are simulated with busty traffic condition which is considered to poison traffic with exponential distribution for delay sensitive and insensitive traffic, where power consumption and latency average is calibrated.
