Caching the most popular contents at Small Base Stations (SBSs) is envisioned as a promising solution to reduce both the load and energy consumption of the backhaul link connecting the SBSs to the core network. This paper considers a set of users whose demands are served by an SBS connected through a wireless backhaul link to a Macro Base Station (MBS). The SBS is capable of caching content in its limited cache memory. The transmission policy at the MBS and the caching policy at the SBS are
