Wireless networks are becoming virtualized and moving to the cloud. How does this affect energy efficiency? What specific tools are available to operators to manage power consumption in the cloud? And do these tools work in both the distributed cloud and the centralized cloud?
I talked with Nicola Marziliano about the work Wind River has been doing in this area, which started before energy efficiency became a top priority for operators.
Operators have to manage energy consumption at multiple stages using different tools to maximize energy efficiency. One common foundation, though, is the use of automation on scale to be able to act on single elements in the network and in real time.
