Keysight: Measuring energy efficiency in Open RAN and traditional RAN

A conversation with Giampaolo Tardioli, General Manager and Vice President, and Jean Dassonville, Strategy Planner at Keysight

Meeting energy efficiency and sustainability targets has become a top priority for operators worldwide. But how can they measure energy consumption and efficiency to ensure they succeed in their efforts, to test, monitor and optimize their networks?

I talked to Jean Dassonville, Strategy Planner at Keysight, and Giampaolo Tardioli, General Manager and Vice President at Keysight, on how network testing and monitoring give operators essential tools to minimize energy consumption.

Keysight works with operators to ensure that their networks perform as they should and that they understand how they use energy and can become more efficient. This is even more important in an Open RAN environment with multiple vendors, a virtualized and cloud-based architecture, where operators want to know not only how much energy they consume but how that relates to performance.
