Can 5G be Green?
Our house is on fire. Year-on-year we are witnessing climate change with weather extremes growing in intensity and frequency. The IPCC gives us only a 50/50 chance to limit global warming to 1.5°C by 2030. Net Zero CO2 emissions are needed sooner yet there are major concerns about the carbon footprint 5G and IoT will bring due to network densification and saturation of connected devices. This presentation explores how 5G is being designed with energy efficiency at heart and also explores how 5G can enable green outcomes across broader industries helping contribute to putting the fire out.
