Abstract: The past decade has been very productive for cellular operators of Pakistan, as their subscribers have grown exponentially with increase in revenue. After this wave of rising, the operators have now reached to saturation level, with the highest teledensity of all time. These Cellular Networks consist of Cell sites, which need electrical power to run. Because of electrical power shortage in Pakistan, the power needs of cell site are fulfilled by the use of electrical power generators which are installed on each site. These generators run on fossil fuel, a large amount of which is being theft from sites. This has very negative impact on Network availability and Operator’s operational expenditure. To cope with this major issue of fuel theft, an embedded system is being designed and tested. This paper highlights this issue of the telecom sector and discusses the design and results of the proposed system. This system would reduce the cell site operational cost and will increase its availability in the service area.
