What is the best way to make wireless networks more energy efficient? No single solution will be sufficient to meet operators’ sustainability net-zero goals: we need to think holistically, and act at multiple levels, in different parts of the networks.
Cristina Rodriguez, Vice President, Wireless Access Network Division, and Alex Quach, Vice President, Wireline and Core Networking Division at Intel, shared their views on why we need a holistic approach to energy efficiency – one that spans core and RAN, that starts with Layer 1 virtualization, and that extends to real-time traffic patterns.
We talked about how Open RAN, distributed and centralized networks, and software tools to manage power consumption on real-time traffic demand can reduce power consumption even as traffic volumes go up.
