Mobile operators account for between 1-2% of total global energy consumption. To quickly bring the 5G network into reality, mobile network operators will need to devise mechanisms to improve the capital intensity at which they operate. The long-term goal of the Future Networks Programme is to boost population coverage of high-speed broadband while optimising capital intensity by unlocking additional value from networks in a cost-efficient manner. The GSMA want to bring together the ‘best of the best’ innovators in the areas of Energy Efficiency, Infrastructure Sharing and Backhaul Relief with our Operator Members to facilitate this network optimisation.

During MWC Americas, we’ll be launching Beta Labs, our brand new ecosystem bringing together Innovators and Operators to find synergies to ultimately save OpEx and CapEx. We invite you to join us at the first ever GSMA Beta Lab, which will be held during Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles. Hear from high-profile speakers at the forefront of innovation as they discuss the challenges they are overcoming for operators and how their solutions will have a positive impact on Network Economics.
