The first section contains a market analysis of green power solutions for East Africa, an approach to managing site security and access control provided by Eaton Towers Uganda, an overview of the tower sharing business model in Indonesia, and a review of Globe Telecom Inc.’s Network Transformation Programme in the Philippines.
With a specific focus on India, the second section focuses on the progress of green telecoms in India and green technology in the telecoms sector.
Finally, the third section is dedicated to Community Power from Mobile, and discusses opportunities to improve community energy and water access, as well as mobile commerce. It also includes a look at solar power in Mozambique and features a case study on sustainable energy and water through machine-to-machine (M2M) technology.
