Jan 19 - Jan 19, 2023
Fierce Wireless presents the Sustainable Networks Summit, taking place January 19th, 2023! This summit will focus on the telecom industry’s road to sustainable networks, segment experts will touch on improving energy efficiency, the increase in use of renewables and the engagement of the entire value chain.
THE ROAD TO MAKING 5G MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT
With the advancements of 5G, the rollout is rapidly accelerating. Analysts predict that the 5G ecosystem will see a 160% increase in power demands by 2030. This rapid growth gives a tremendous opportunity for mobile companies to support energy-efficiency innovations and drive progress for sustainable tech development. In fact, many telco giants are already implementing sustainable approaches including a mix of energy-saving software, precision-building networks, intelligent use of infrastructure and even choosing to power its networks with renewables. But, with the production of telecom devices and 5G infrastructure to consider, how can a company begin to tackle implementing sustainable practices across the entire value chain? Will partnerships be necessary for progress? What lessons can we draw from recent case studies? What technology innovations can help drive the sustainable networks?
TELCO & IoT SERVICES FOR A NET ZERO ECONOMY
Taking action to achieve Net Zero right now is more important than ever before. At the latest, the industry has made a commitment to reach net zero by 2050 with attempts to rapidly decarbonize as a sector and to help others reduce their emissions. The mobile industry has begun taking steps toward NetZero but much still needs to be done. During this session, telco industry experts will examine the role of the industry in the NetZero vision, the market approaches, and the hurdles it faces to get there.
