System Dynamics Model for Base Transceiver Station (BTS) Infrastructure in Rural Areas toward Green BTS

Wahyu Sardjono, Suryadi Sirait


The presence of green BTS or BTS remote, that particular BTS based on IP technology that has a small capacity, low power's consumption with standard features suitable for use in rural areas and utilize 100% solar energy as an energy source is an implementation of the concept of sustainable development (sustainable development) in the field of telecommunications. BTS Green Infrastructure is composed of devices that are technologically advanced, energy-saving, environmentally friendly, small and lightweight. Problems high call rates and SMS services on BTS Environmentally caused because there is a competitor telecom operators at a site, thus solving the problem that needs to be done with the existing system dynamics modeling approach with the aim to establish causality (cause and effect) between the variables. Standard model pattern changed target (target has changed) on System Dynamics can be used to demonstrate the behavior of the model between the number of subscribers, the availability of network capacity and ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) on the Green BTS site. In the standard model of the target is changed, the actual revenue was placed as the actual event, the target revenue as a target, the difference between the actual and target revenue gap, its changes as the pressure on the target and the corrective action taken against revenue as a corrective action. Based on simulation results, the standard model change targets can be developed by adding 2 negative loop (balancing loop) as an alternative solution towards the achievement of revenue targets that have been set.
