In future networks will be more decentralised; more automated; more multi-access. What will that mean for the fundamental task of moving data packets to the right places, times and users? 6GWorld breaks down a few of the challenges and possible solutions with three experts from Enea.
Ana Galindo Serrano of Orange chats with Transforma Insights' Jim Morrish about the work Orange and the NGMN are doing to curb power consumption in the network.
Among other things, the pair discuss moves to reduce energy usage in datacentres and battery rooms; and global steps towards introducing control and optimisation processes to maximise energy efficiency throughout the network.
Saima Ansari of Deutsche Telekom sits down to chat with Jim Morrish of Transforma Insights about sustainability in the network. Among other things they discuss DT's goals of reducing their carbon emissions by 90% over the coming decade and, in particular, how DT is tackling the challenge of reducing energy usage within the network, especially in the face of a projected growth in usage and devices.
This short video is just one of a series of conversations for 6GWorld designed to illuminate different aspects of how the telecoms industry can reconcile growth and sustainability, and connects to Transforma Insights' latest research on Sustainability in New & Emerging Technologies.
The telecoms industry is firmly on the frontlines of decarbonisation policies globally. Recent weeks have seen the launch of several new grassroots initiatives by the industry that could drastically reduce telecoms' environmental impact.
NASA expects to deploy the network in late 2022, validating technology that aims to enable faster and reliable lunar surface communications
Under the guidance of InterDigital's Doug Castor, panelists from NTT DoCoMo, Keysight, MIT, the ONF and the Small Cell Forum explore different ways to reimagine wireless network architecture, supporting new KPIs and encouraging the evolution of 6G.
Ultra dense 5G Wireless networks, with a wide number of heterogeneous cells, makes the network configuration, management and restoration extremely challenging. It is not endowed with enough intelligence and flexibility.
