We consider a problem arising in the design of green (or energy-saving) wireless local area networks (GWLANs). Decisions on both location and capacity dimensioning must be taken simultaneously. We model the problem as an integer program with nonlinear constraints and derive valid inequalities. We handle the nonlinearity of the formulation by developing a Benders decomposition algorithm. We propose various ways to improve the Benders master problem and the feasibility cuts.
