Power consumption of mobile devices is a great concern in the current mobile communication systems. Recent analysis by manufacturers and network operators has shown that current wireless networks are not very energy efficient. Power consumption is directly related to the coverage area of the base station. So in this chapter, we will analyze and compare the total power consumption, power consumption per covered area and ranges of the macrocell, microcell and femtocell base stations for Mobile WiMAX, fixed WiMAX, UMTS, HSPA, LTE for 1x1 SISO systems and mobile WiMAX, HSPA and LTE will be consider for 2x2 MIMO system. The numerical example will be illustrated with help of simulation results. This chapter enables the reader for knowledge of power consumption in existing wireless access networks technology with detailed of current and future trend of research.
